As it turns out, it was quite a while before I was able to get more compost. I had to pull some new weeds, but not too many, because it was fairly dry during this period. In the meantime, look at how the flowering tobacco has thrived in the previously planted section.
Now, the digging and dividing of perennials, the general autumn cleanup and the planting of spring bulbs are all an act of faith. One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.
