Plans for Spring
Part of my restlessness comes from recently attending the MOSES Organic Farming Conference a couple of weeks ago. Being surrounded by farmers just makes me want to plant something! While at the conference I picked up a couple of elderberry sticks. These little twigs will sprout new elderberry bushes this year. For now they're forming roots and shoots in a little mason jar in my kitchen. Soon they'll be growing among the day lilies in the backyard! Then I can make juice, jam and tinctures with them!
Also new for the garden plan this year: hazelnuts, okra and asparagus (assuming it successfully comes back). Oh, I can't wait for spring!
