january community garden plot
The low sun is making a prism of light across my camera lens. In the foreground my pear tree branches are budded and braving the cold. Winter rye is growing in a few beds, green manure to turn under in the spring. The garlic bed is covered with salt march hay and I'm imagining healthy garlic root systems. I see some arugula that is still green. My compost bin was full to the brim in the fall. I ended up with a big pile of debris that wouldn't fit in. I see the lid is now sinking as contents mature. The rest seems pretty quiet and cold. No snow. That's nice for me, but my garden soil and garlic roots would prefer to be covered.
