So we had that horrible snowstorm almost 2 weeks ago now, that resulted in us losing power for 5 days. It was cold and miserable. We're still waiting for the city to take away the limbs that were downed during the storm. This is out front of our house - just imagine every single other house in the city with piles like this, but mostly bigger. 'Lasagne Gardening' style so they can compost themselves over the winter and be perfect for planting in the spring. I bought big bags of peat moss and dried cow manure that I will add with layers of mowed grass and leaves, of which there is plenty in New Hampshire this time of year!
Any gardeners out there - Home Depot has all their trees/shrubs/bushes on sale right now for 75% off. I bought hydrangeas, roses, and a butterfly bush amongst others for $2-$4 each. Bargain!! Plus it's a great time to plant them so their roots are strong by spring.
There are 100 questions to study, of which I'll be asked 10. I think I handle the ones like, "Where is the Statue of Liberty?", or, "What is the name of the National Anthem", or, "What happened on September 11, 2001 in the United States?". It's questions like, "The House of Representatives has how many voting members?" that I need to study up on. Wish me luck!
