The Spring gardening season began this weekend in our garden plot. My husband did most of the work since I started back to full-time work outside the home a few weeks ago. My husband pruned the fig tree, prepare the soil in our salad table, cleaned 45 small containers and planted pepper, tomato and eggplant seeds in the containers.
I enjoyed watching his gardener heart at work. Only a true gardener would…..
1. Wrap some fig tree cuttings with moist paper towels, bundle them in a plastic bag and place them in a warm spot on top of the refrigerator. He has high hopes of starting more fig trees.
2. Give some fig tree cuttings to neighbors who also like to garden.
3. Turn and work together our smelly kitchen compost and seed starting mix with bare hands and a smile.
4. Create a mini greenhouse in our basement with sawhorses, plastic drop cloth and a small space heater. Our newly planted seeds are warm and cozy under the plastic blanket tent with warm air circulating around them.
