how does your garden grow

Five straight weekends of either snow or rain have me ready for spring. Especially since March was unseasonally dry and warm. Such a tease of a month really. Things are beginning to turn green in our little garden. Seedlings are popping up and trees are budding.

Seedlings like carrots, beets and snap peas are coming up fast in the garden. Lettuce, bok choy, arugula and Swiss Chard are also doing well thanks to all the moisture. It's going to be another week before we can plant tomatoes or peppers. This is time of year I find myself faced with the difficult challenge of one, being patient. And two, having focus. Two very important traits in adulthood. All I can think about is being outside. I suddenly become a 14 year old without a care in the world. I love the change of seasons. They always do this to me.
