Thinned out the rest of the arugula in the green garlic bed, fertilized and watered the young shoots.
Also fertilized (a mixture of horse manure and magic powders) and watered the tuscan and curly kale, mache, and spinach on the 2nd terrace.
Recovered the compost, the critters dug up some egg shells and old bread.
Planted spring bulbs: crocus, narcissus,daffodils,lily of the valley.
You can never have too many flowers. Flowers feed the soul.
Planted more garlic next to the frisee. It was almost dark. Never tried planting garlic in January.
Usually plant during full moon in October. Its almost full moon now. See what happens.
You can never have too much garlic.
Harvested carrots for stew from New Years Eve prime rib leftovers. Been cooking stock for 2 days.
