Each year I wait out winter with a very long lists of things I must and things I want to get done around the garden. There are trellises and fences to be built. Things to be painted and stained. Reordering and rearranging to be done….
I sit watching the rain and wait…and wait some more.
At the end of each dry season I still have a long list of things to do…never enough time to get it all done.
I have decided that this winter will be different…I have decided instead of staying indoors waiting, I will put on my rain gear and work through the wet and the wind.
Many things can be done in the winter, building projects especially. They will not be as pleasant as in the summer but done they will be.
I have a new list. Things that can still be accomplished in the winter….
The new kiwi trellis
Finish the fence around the cane berries.
Build a two new raised beds for strawberries.
New wire supports over the chicken yard for the roses.
4 Gates to be built and painted in the garage.
If I could finish these things my list in the spring will be much more manageable. It will be wet and cold but I’m sure the feeling of accomplishment will outweigh the chill!
So dear Not Normal Readers….do you have any outdoor projects that you are going to try to get done this winter?
