If it would freeze properly, I could skate on it. I tried once, but it wasn’t solid enough. this really makes me wonder if my low-lying location was a good idea. Are all the stewing nutrients of the soil going to drain away? How on earth are the garlic cloves faring in this lake? Maybe it will turn out be a good thing I planted them too deep.
If this means I have to start all over this spring from breaking sod, that’s just depressing. Starting from scratch is a terrible idea.
One thing for sure- next year I’ll definitely take the tomato stakes out in the fall, so I can skate. I left them because supposedly tomatoes enjoy growing in the same place year after year.
