Things That Make Me Happy…

1) A big pile of cow manure for my garden…

Manure

Yup, I'm that easy to please!

My neighbors might forgive me…

2)  Putting the garden to bed and working the soil…

5) Planting my own strain of garlic for next year (note the HUGE cloves!)

Planting garlic is like a promise that spring is going to come again...

6) Lacing up my running shoes for a crisp, cool fall run.

    I love that pup, and I don’t even know him. Actually, you’re pretty cool too, and I haven’t met you either! :) We need to remedy that situation sometime at a race somewhere. I bet you have one kickin’ garden in the summer. And garlic is some pretty good stuff, especially with those HUGE cloves!

    Porter is so cute. You are lucky to have composted manure in your garden.Planting garlic in your own garden is wonderful.

    No way, you have a stream by your house? That’s something to be jealous about. I have a big pond but I have to drive to the back of the farm to get to it.

    Put our garden to bed the other week. Kept piling in all of the chopped up leaves from our yard :) Gotta love all that free carbon for your soil!

    I heart garlic… BIG TIME!
