The Root

One gardener’s quest to get to the bottom of it all.

It’s Beautiful, But I Can’t Garden in It March 28, 2008

We woke up to exuberant new mounds of snow this morning.

March 2008 Snowfall

It’s gorgeous. But it’s so ironic: Just yesterday, standing near the exposed earth of my garden plot, I announced to Neville that I would plant carrots and radishes outdoors today, that I didn’t have to wait and build and plant everything in a raised bed, that the soil was bare and begging to be used.

And the stormclouds said, “Ha!”

It’s still coming down out there.
