I’m so excited to see this beautiful weather coming out behind those nasty dark clouds we’ve had here lately. The other day I went out to check out my garden status and I was surprised to see a couple things coming back from last year.
Isn’t that fun!!!
Of course there was a bunch of clean up I needed to do since I never got around to it in the fall. Then I tilled the soil and planted my peas.
How many of you have a garden? How many of you have wanted to garden but think it’s a bit intimidating?
That was the way I always felt about it until last year. I finally dove into the whole idea and was surprised at how easy it was. I thought there was no way I could actually GROW something, but sure enough, I produced everything from tomatoes, to cucumbers, to squash, to strawberries. It was such a great feeling knowing that I was actually capable of growing my own produce.
So I challenge you all this year to grow a garden. This is the month to plant peas so get those babies in the ground. Start small, get a big pot and plant a few things. Get your kids to join in too. I’ve noticed that last year Lily would actually eat ANYTHING that came from our garden. Not sure why that is, but she loved every bit of it, including the beets.
