This was an interesting week out at the farm.  The winds came and blew away all the water and mud, and now we have begun that most pleasant time of year in Colorado: December!  Most immigrants to Colorado don’t realize that December can be the nicest time of year.  November is usually shocking for its brutality, and there are merciless and endless winter conditions in January, February, March and sometimes April too.  But December is usually pleasantly warm, never too hot, refreshingly cool at night, and entirely without flies or mosquitoes.  Except for one fly, which I saw yesterday!

 

December is a great time in Colorado to do some gardening.  We are always turning and turning our aisles in the winter, preparing for springtime.  The soil becomes richer in the winter, as the microbes can work without interruption improving the soil.  A thick mulch over the beds helps the worms put in some unpaid overtime.  And in the spring, you’re ready to plant in last year’s aisles, and begin to convert last year’s beds to aisles I the summer.
