If you were to pass by my yard today yall, you’d see how pretty our collard greens are looking. They are growing up so nice and getting larger by the day. I am amazed because we had a really bad frost this winter and so I think we lost all of the turnips in the wooden raised bed to that frost and I thought we’d lost all of the collards too because they were wilted over just like the turnips, but to my surprise some of them bounced back up. I am so thankful that not all was lost as there seems to have been those stubborn few collards and turnips plants that survived.
And I tell you I can’t help but notice how much the grass is growing up quite early this season while at the same time, there’s still some dead leaves on the tree’s and some still falling to the ground. We normally do not have to concern ourselves in getting someone to cut the grass so soon especially in March but from the looks of things nature has decided to speed things up a bit I guess.
And another thing, it’s been just raining and raining down here every week and for days and days on end. Well all of this is quite amazing that you’d think something has to be going on with nature because apparently she’s acting a bit confused. (lol!)
It also seems to me as if the days are getting shorter because time is going by so fast that there aren’t enough hours in the day and not enough time to do everything you have to do. I remember how summer’s were long and winter days were even longer.
Well I am looking forward to day lights saving time to come kicking in this week. I’ve had enough of winter! Well unless winter looks something like this…..
yeah, I could live with a winter that looks like that… LOL!
So anyway my husband has our little garden in motion as he started it up by filling up several large old tires with good quality garden soil mixed with lime and filled in the wooden raised bed too with the soil and so looking around at the progress makes me so happy when I can see some of the greens we planted has survived. Its a good thing we over planted because I thought we put out too many of them and they were so close together and I was kinda worried but as it turns out, more is less because less then half of them even survived but are growing up pretty nicely. Well maybe it’s not so many left but as one of my old country friends down here says “it’s enough to make a meal!”
So may you have an amazing weekend!
