The Garden

I worked in the garden today. I wasn't sure how the tiller wintered, but a tank of fresh gas with a shot if ether and that old boy fired right up.
I tilled up enough space for ten cabbage plants and a long row of English peas. I'll follow up in a few weeks with a few other early crops. After the last chance of frost, I'll plant the bulk of the garden that will include squash, cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, and the other stuff.
I should have more time to tend it this year. In the past, I've had good results early but then the weeds take over.  A little attention each day does miracles.
I've worked hard all day around the house trying to get things back in order, so I'm winding down now. It will be an early night tonight as Jilda and I are on Coffee Time on Channel 55 first thing in the morning.
Have a great weekend.
