Sniff…..aaah….do you smell it? It’s gardening time! Spring is in the air and it’s time to get movin’ in the garden.
We are definitely behind schedule due to our little girl showing up 6 weeks earlier than planned, but it’s never to late to start!
While my gang is busy getting things ready, I’m inside taking care of baby. I cringe sometimes because I ache to be out there, but at this point it’s a bit too chilly for baby and I am still recovering myself. Can you tell I don’t stand still too long?
Our beds took a beating with the winter we had last year, but here’s a snippet of what our garden looks like in the peak season. You can read about it here.
Now all we need to do is amend it with our compost, some manure, and then bring on the seed!
So, you might be wondering about the location of our garden. Yes, it’s in the front yard of our .25 acre city lot because even though our back yard is by far bigger it is highly shaded.
We actually find that the neighbors make special trips just to walk down our street just to pass by our yard. When we were putting the beds in some thought we were carving out the local university’s letters…um…no. I decided to take my sister’s advice and share that we were creating a family plot. Ha!
It creates fun times of interaction for sure!
Anyhoo, who can pass up enjoying all this garden bounty that you’ve labored over, is completely free of chemicals, and is organic in all aspects?
