|FOGGY, SNOWY MORNING|
I did more pruning yesterday and cut back dead growth in the garden and raked out all the debris. Today I will fertilize with Milorganite and put down mulch. The garden needs a makeover but I can’t get at that big job until fall. When I was young I always said there was no way to get in shape for summer construction work except to do it, the same with digging trees. I might add that is also true of gardening. Walking, exercise routines, whatever, never does much for the muscle groups needed to do the work of gardening. I make that statement while experiencing the gardener’s lament; stiff knees, aching back and sore hands.
