Ah...Spring

It's finally starting to feel like spring around here. Right now I have a few windows cracked around the house letting in the fresh air. Sam and I got my compost bin set up in the garden. We even cleared the leaves from around the strawberry plants and put those in the bin. 

I was a little surprised to see a few green things growing underneath the leaves. I'm not sure what they are, but they are green, so I'll leave them for now. Once the ground gets all thawed and dried out a little I've got a lot of work to do in the garden. We need to get a big roto-tiller and level it out and then get a ton of dirt to raise it up. I'm not looking forward to all the work, but I'm so excited to get things planted in the garden that it pretty much makes up for it.

My seedlings are starting to get really big. They're taking over my sewing table.













You can see my tomatoes are the tallest, but my bean plants are quickly catching up! I have peppers on the windowsill. There are also squash, cucumbers, cantaloupe and new this year are green beans and kidney beans. I'm anxious to dry out the kidney beans and can them this fall. We'll see how that turns out. 

Heaven forbid I actually need to sew something. 

Well, off to enjoy the rest of this beautiful day!!!

yes, the warm weather has been delightful!

i'm envious of your little sproutlings and think that this year i'll probably just have a couple of tomato plants. there's just too much going on for me to keep up with plants too!

It does feel like spring is here. I bet Sammy is really liking the outside this year. It is nice that you have a good sized fenced yard for the kids.

It will be fun to see the garden this year.
