Winter BBQ practice down at the kitchen gardens

December 23, 2005

Can kitchen garden soil ever really have enough potash? A quick look around the environs and the answer is a resounding ‘no’. It’s fire lighting time, again!

All the guys are doing it. Really. Every single last one of them.

Because lighting fires is like youth serum.

But all that fire building is to compensate for the fact that mornings, the gardens look like this. The ground is frozen solid and there is a beautiful white frost cloaking everything. My neighbour, AlGouche, jokes that we should go for a ski, and motions between the rows.

There’s still plenty to do around here. In the next weeks I’ll prepare a little nursery for the seedlings in the back, sink a pipe to bring water down both sides of the garden and make an ergonomic garden layout. Famous last words: this year, I’m going to design the garden to make it easier on myself.
