Spring has almost sprung.

It's the first week of March.  Temperatures have been way above normal.  Today it reached 74 degrees.  Normal would be in the low 50's.

Lettuce, radishes, peas, and onions are in the ground.  In the dining room are 48 little containers of tomato, pepper, and brussels sprout seeds.  Some are even poking their heads up.

Potatoes were planted today.  We had some child labor involved.  It's always a joy!

But poor Bentley could do nothing but watch.  He has 7 more days to wear his Elizabethan collar.

You're ahead of us! Between phases of this door project, we managed to get peas and spinach in, but nothing else. Next week is supposed to be nice, though, so maybe we can do it then.

You are ahead of us too. We haven't even THOUGHT about our garden yet . . . but we must do that soon! Enjoy this day!

Hasn't this been an unusual winter. Not near enough rain, I'm thinking.

Wow, getting ready to plant already! We are still buried under snowbanks. Although it was 60 degrees on Wed. I got up today and it was snowing and very cold.

You are way ahead!! I think it will do well, considering our current weather pattern. We have a new tiller on order from Lowes.. I am so excited I can't stand it. My Troy Bilt Pony is almost as old as the Fiddler (he's soon to be 30). Garden is lookin' good! So is Lizzie your helper! Poor Bentley! -Tammy
