sleeping garden

Here is a what kept us busy most of last summer, rebuilding the sunroom on the south side of the house. Got lucky and was able to find excellent carpenters to keep me out of trouble. Aaron helped with design and material selection, and I enjoyed working with him. I'll post photos of the finished product when it's finished. Got it closed in before the snow blew last fall, but plenty to do inside this winter. Insulation, wiring, and wall covering proceeded slowly.

Here is a shot of our main garden, with a bit of the deer fence still clinging to the wire we strung it to. That'll need some fixing before our plants sprout. This is from February, and as I write it's now March, but the sun is higher, the snow is leaving. I just planted our next crop of tomatoes, peppers, and onions in the basement today. A couple more weeks, and I will do some of our broccoli, a few other peppers. The wheel turns, and we are heading in to the next growing season. First in the ground will actually be potatoes, but we aren't quite to the point of saving our own seed potatoes.
