Chronicaling the lunacy of taming three acres in Tidewater Virginia, one square foot at a time!

Winter Greetings

Winter greetings are about all I got! It's really cold!
A good bonfire fed by miscellaneous fallen brush collected around the yard.
My fig is showing signs of life.
Underneath pine straw and such, the strawberries are waiting for the warm up.
Lemon balm doesn't care it's winter....a quick rub and my hands were summer lemony!
Pods of okra left to age, look kind of cool I think.
For now I will just keep warm by the fire.
