“January is the quietest month in the garden. … But just because it looks quiet doesn’t mean that nothing
is happening. The soil, open to the sky, absorbs the pure rainfall while microorganisms convert tilled-under
fodder into usable nutrients for the next crop of plants. The feasting earthworms tunnel along, aerating
the soil and preparing it to welcome the seeds and bare roots to come.”

Rosalie Muller Wright, Editor of Sunset Magazine, 1/99 (via growthchart)
