Amen! I've got a list about 2 feet long of things to do in the garden.
First I'm gonna start the spring seeds under the lights in the office
here, then it's on to pulling out freeze killed stuff, harvesting more
stuff, and watering everything in sight and some that isn't. This warm
weather is gonna be the death of me cause I want to get out there and do
stuff. Get busy Harry!
