Digging in the
dirt comes with much less effort this time of year. On a seemingly unrelated
tangent, the time changes this weekend. One additional random thought: you
might consider checking out your night lights. The short day length does make
for some adjustment when gardening. Either you have to become a morning person
and utilize the morning availability of sunlight or do a work-around.
If gardening at dawn is not a viable option, a portable set of halogen or fluorescent lights with a 50 to 100’ extension cord works well to extend the day. Depending on what you get, those can be had for $20 to $50 at the box stores. Well worth the money for any outdoor project that would otherwise get stopped by darkness. Besides, if you’re not a morning person already, it’s doubtful it’ll happen now.
