Garden thoughts.

As some of you know I am trying a number of diffrent ways with my garden this year.
I have learned that the moons pull on the earth not only affects the ocean but the ground water and is part of the reason sap goes up and down in a tree. I am going to keep a log of my garden this year so I am adding the information to another blog called it's green day. I wish my Aunt lived near me as she understands the farmers almanac. And all the old ways of gardening. I have looked high and low on the web for a blog to guide me. But I guess, for now it will be trial and error. All that I have found are wonderful Aussie blogs and UK. And we are in a diffrent cycle than them. They are getting ready for fall and we are in spring. So for now I am looking at 2 online calendars and the farmers almanac digital page I purchased to guide me through what days to plant what veggie or flower.
I have learned allot from Australian blogs. I am going to try some of there ways this year too. They use Permaculture .In this context, permanent agriculture is understood as agriculture that can be sustained indefinitely.
So at this time I feel like I am studding for a final in high school again.
I have to put into practice what I have been learning about this winter.

Looks like fun! I can't wait to get into my garden. I am sure yours will be a big success! I also like the Australian and UK blogs. We learn so much, don't we?

I'm also looking forward to gardening every day I check my bulbs and seeing the growth on them.
Spring seem to take a long time to come around here.

Coffee is on.

Good Luck with your garden, Grammy. I'm sure it will do well.

I am sure your garden will do very well. Your heart is too big for it not to grow.

There's a lot of wisdom and common sense in the old way of doing things. I'm sure you'll pass your gardening final with flying colors (and lots of veggies!).
