Old Ways

Well, we're back to our old ways again, as the saying goes. Digging and hauling, digging and hauling. When the warm weather first starts and the sun is shining, digging in the dirt and hauling rubble are two things I can really get behind. Let's hope we finish this project before it's been warm long enough for me to realize that that's all I've been up to.
Today we were supposed to plant peas. I know that because today is St. Patrick's day. It is also the day we were supposed to plant arugula and spinach. But instead we were digging and hauling, because the tree people haven't come yet to cut down the last of our locust trees (see previous entry), and we can't have those guys stomping around and cutting trees down on top of our newly planted beds. But when will they come? Something tells me it isn't spring unless I have something planted in the ground. Lucky for me, the garlic we planted in the fall is coming well up out of the mulch now.
Tomorrow promises to be another delightful sunny day, and if the tree people haven't come by then, we'll be digging and hauling again.
