Midwinter Merriment: Don’t Be Afraid to Get Your Phone Dirty

Here it is – a countdown til spring. From now until the first day of spring, I will post ways to make the dreary days of midwinter a little more merry.

Day 14: Get your phone dirty and capture the moment.

harvestI started a new Twitter hashtag this weekend #dirtonmyiPhone. It doesn’t matter whether or not I wear my garden gloves, I always end up with dirt under my nails and on my iPhone because I can’t help, but stop and capture the moments I nerd out about when gardening.  Like this weekend, when I harvested 1/2 pound of beautiful chard leaves. You should have seen the huge smile on my face.
