We are reaching that time of year when we long for a 36 hour day. We are sowing seeds at our homes in the evenings or mornings and growing them on after they have germinated. Down at the nursery, we are trying to finish the refurbishment of our garden, relaying the paths and extending some beds. The planting also needs tweaking, as I’m sure you all know, no garden is ever finished.
While we are busy digging out stuff, we also need to be cleaning, splitting or potting up our stock of hundreds and hundreds of plants. The sales area has to be laid out, too. The Shade Tunnel has suffered from the storm-force winds of the winter and has to be recovered and the boundary fence leans drunkenly from the same source, so has to be reinforced.
Meanwhile, life goes on – food shopping, banking, walking the dogs, washing, cleaning, ironing etc. So that’s why we would like a new calendar: Jan. Feb. and March should have 36 hours in each day and possibly 40 days as well. We’d be ready for the summer then. Anyone second my proposal?
