Spring Fever!!

IMG_1171fresh out of the tree

Yes, it’s only the beginning of March… but was sunny yesterday, sunny today, and should be sunny tomorrow. There is not a cloud in the sky, the thermometer reads 49 degrees, and the sap is running!

What better way to celebrate this weather than to plant seeds and start thinking GARDENING!?! I finally found time to get my hands dirty – literally dirt-y! Then I baked a vanilla cake with maple frosting (recipe to come) and layed out on the porch to bask in the glory of sun and fresh air! Check out some photos…

And for the planting of seeds….


Using the sink to expand the seed-starting peat… great idea!


oh the garden dilemma – so many seeds, so little time!
