Fresh veggies!! Robust and beautiful flowers! Aching back and dirt-filled nails! Oh, yes! Yes!! Bring it on!
My sweet husband is once again laboring away on something that I have wanted for a long time. The gift he gave me for Christmas. My coveted greenhouse. Which went along with the round, tumble compost maker. Good rich dirt is one of my favorite things.
The weather was gorgeous, so the flower beds got cleaned, and all the new buds coming up were exclaimed over with lots of oohing and excited squealing. I love spring.
The greenhouse has our gardening juices flowing. Not only will we have things growing in that, we will also have things for the small orchard we are planning. We went through Stark Brothers catalog and ordered fruit trees and asparagus and strawberries and blueberries and blackberries and… I am just so excited.
Did I mention I love spring?
We have sat here and watched youtube videos on gardening in raised beds, growing in the garden plot, making compost, how to plant certain plants, all sorts of things. Here are a few of them just in case you find a plant catalog lying around somewhere. I’ll warn you now. If you look through the catalog and watch the videos, it will change your life.
