yay, garden's! We planted ours a few weeks ago...but got a unexpected cold snap (nothing like CO, though!). Most of it seems fine, though the radishes are growing like CRAZY! This is my first garden, and I think I'm addicted! Glad it's warming up for you!


so jealous!

i have spent a few hours the past few days pulling onion grass out of the garden. yes, it's nice to have my hands in the dirt, but digging out something that has narly root systems, grow deep-deep-deep in the ground and smell like onions? no so fun.


So colorful! Love planting season. I have to go get some compost for the garden today. I am looking forward to seeing your garden through your blog. :)

Watch out for goes crazy. We used to use it in our tea...yum! We're planting some wildflower seeds tomorrow. 'Glad your time with the girls this weekend went well!
Blessings on you,

Sounds like you've been busy Joanne. The weather must have warmed up a bit. I am itching to get into my garden but it's a bit too soon here. BTW... do you remember a while back you had posted about letting go of certain things. Control issues I think it was. I had mentioned a book called "Let Go and Let God". I don't think I gave you the right title at the time. I think I had it reversed. Needless to say, I finally found it. The author is Albert E. Cliffe. A great book really helped me. I think I need it read it again so I can LET GO!


I've been planning my garden as well. I'm not to planting yet as the weather around here is pretty crazy until about Mothers Day! (Do you know it's likely to snow on us tomorrow night here in Denver?)
I've got cilantro, lettuces, arugula, thyme and strawberries up and going from last year. I'm going to do just the two raised beds and my wildflower garden this year to cut back. I'll hardly be able to bend over by mid-summer to work out there!
It sounds like you are feeling better! I'm glad. Hope to get together soon!
