Happy new year! It's January second, and many of you are heading back into work despite not having quite recovered from the holidays. Fortunately, it's a short week. If it makes you feel better, I spent the afternoon shoveling rabbit poop and soggy compost.
I did take a minute to check the blog stats for 2012 (readers in 47 countries, not bad for a 6 month-old blog) and thought I'd share the most popular posts from 2012. It looks like I should post updates on the ficoide glaciale and the cape gooseberry plants; both are doing splendidly. Although looking at the search engine reports, if I really want to target the most popular search terms, I need to do more posts on "big melons."
