Getting Dirty

Just look at this soil!
I spent the day pruning raspberry and blackberry canes, the apple tree and the lilacs. I crunched up last year's dried cucumber vines and bean stems into the compost and spread the last of the composted manure in the beds. I did a little digging and said hello to about a half dozen wiggly pink worms in every shovelful. I could sit and stare at this soil for hours.
