Ice Out

The ice went out on the pond yesterday.  After the torrential rains, we’re having a stretch of nice weather.  Today is supposed to be around 80 degrees, which will melt some of pile of snow that slid off the roof of the barn.  I’ve got some blueberry bushes, strawberries, grapes and asparagus to get in the ground, but I’m going to give it another day or two because it was frozen just a few days ago.  I’m going to try some lasagna beds this year – our soil is sandy and quick to drain, and the heavy mulch on top should help it to hold more water.  It’s an exciting time, with new growth ready to explode.  I’m really looking forward to some fresh fruits and vegetables.

Note: Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device that demonstrates his writing prowess.
