playing in the dirt

Post  Eric Lingo on Sun Mar 22, 2015 1:29 pm

nothing is quite so satisfying then sending the morning playing in your Mel's Mix

spent the morning rotating in some fresh compost getting prepared for my spring/early summer planting..we are actualy going to try for a dbl harvesting of summer plants since southern California has been getting 70-80 degrees lately..so planting some 3-4month stuff and then plant a late summer/early fall harvest and I am going to try my hand at a oct/nov harvest time of pumpkins this year.

*giggles like a kid* love playing in my MM

ALL kids should play in the dirt and grown-ups should also garden without gloves unless you have just painted your nails and you want the nail polish to last a little while).  It is good for the immune system. So I have heard.

My siblings and I played in a pile of dirt, using our imaginations to make it a battle field, a mountain or whatever we wanted it to be. Placing buildings on it  made with bits of wood and stone etc.

Oh, gosh.  As an only child, I played in the dirt, making little rivers that I filled from the hose, with stick bridges, riding the little plastic cowboys and Indians with their horses all around the plants.  Helps develop an imagination, I think.  Planted 6 tomato plants and watched from the kitchen window as a gopher pulled 2 of them into his tunnel under ground. Shocked All this in elementary school.  Now, here I am playing in the dirt.

[Total side note:  I thought playing in the dirt in the South East put one at risk for hookworms.  So, I Binged it, and now I read that it has been greatly eliminated in the US.  Nice to know. http://www.cdc.gov/parasites/hookworm/index.html]
