After gardening, day-after-day, from May to August, I am content to taper off in September. The fall is a lovely time for hiking. Beautiful autumn colours, crisp sunny days.
But then cold, dreary, wet weather in the winter months set in and keep me inside more than I'd like.
I'm OK for a while to not be gardening, but then the shorter days and lack of sunlight start to get to me.
It's now been over three months since I've done any serious dirt-digging, and my thoughts have returned to gardening. I leaf through gardening magazines, occasionally heaving a sigh. I browse seed catalogues, dream about different deck-plant-layouts, and fantasize about building cold-frames.
In early March I'll start some seeds indoors on a windowsill.
In the meantime I'll plan and dream,
|I've just gotta try growing these this year !|
Do you go through dirt withdrawal too ?
