Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

I went to Wal Mart yesterday to get some more manure for our garden. I put the ten bags I got earlier on but they didn't cover the garden spot so I went and got five more. I got a lot irritated when I got back to the truck and found that I had been charged $2.77 per bag and they were marked in the pile for $1.24 (way to pay attention there man). So I went back and got part of my money back. My grandpa would still roll over in his grave if he knew I paid anything for manure - ANYTHING.

I was planning to roto till the garden this weekend but the weather is pretty nasty right now and pretty cold - so I'll wait until later today to see if it warms up. If it doesn't it will have to wait a couple of weeks because I have to go to training next Friday night and Saturday all day.

Last year I waited way too long to do the garden and we didn't start getting anything from it until way late. I won't make that mistake again - I will plant it by Mothers Day from now on.

I'm jealous of your garden. Maybe this year we'll plant one in time. :)
