One mighty expensive tomato
While waiting for the last of the snow to melt, and for the soil to dry and to warm enough to plant the first seeds of spring, whats a gardener to do? I suppose it would be a fine and noble thing to spend some time sorting through tools, cleaning and sharpening those that remain useful and repairing or replacing those that are not. It may even suit some to paint the handles of favorite tools a bright color so they can be easily found. Unfortunately, one can only make those chores last so long, and when one finally has to admit that all of ones tools are in top condition, and the garden shed is spotless and organized, theres still plenty of early spring left. It was at that point (well, before that point for me; I readily admit that my garden shed is never spotless) that I came across a new book at the library that took my mind off of the chill and mudat least for a little while.
