"or I shall not get home tonight"

I was reminded of the story of the Old Woman and Her Pig as I made my to-do list yesterday morning. There is such a chain of events in the garden and they all come back to the compost pile. The cucumbers are not going to grow unless the beds have been amended and the beds can’t be amended until the compost piles are turned and sorted. So there I was with my compost fork working my way through my two slow piles of yard waste.

Old Woman and Her Pig was one of my favorite stories as a kid. How fun to read it again!

Yes, gardening is definitely a series of to-dos, but so worth it in the end. Good luck with your beds!
