Hello everyone,

It’s funny, I am probably the only person in the world who doesn’t blog, but it’s been sort of fun to write a journal entry about my plans for the gardening year in 2012.

Having a bout of insomnia this morning, I watched my favorite gardening show of all time, “Victorian Kitchen Garden” and so want to get out in the garden today. Unfortunately, it’s still dark here (at 8:02 in the morning), so I will have to wait a bit. I don’t want to! :)

It sure is nippy outside, though, but I think the day will be great, as it will be the first time I see the sun in over a week. Actually, it’ll be the first time I see daylight in a week as well! Really! I have been going to work in the dark and coming home in the dark, so it’s really nice for me today.

I will be turning over the compost bin, if I can, today. I will also be workint outside in the greenhouse, monitoring my solar soda can heater.during the sunlight hours, setting up my 2nd grow light, and wherever else my gardening takes me today.

I’ll try to remember to post some pictures, but sometimes I just forget the camera, etc. :)

Happy gardening to you all. I hope it’s sunny and not too snow-stricken where you live.
