"ROSE TIPS" TURN THE SOIL
The sky blue and the water calm. With shovel in hand, today I spent hours turning the soil of my garden. There is nothing more satisfying than "waking up" the dormant garden. When we put it to "sleep" in the Winter, we cover it with a blanket consisting of fallen leaves we gathered from Fall. Then we soak it well to keep the leaves in place. When Spring comes, I turn the leaves into the soil. We have been doing this for the last 3 years and this year I am amazed at the richness of the soil.
