Today was a day for nothing. We had nothing planned, nothing we HAD to get done. It was perfect.
And the weather, sweet mother is was FANTASTIC! We had windows down in the car, no coats…wonderful.
We are planning our garden for the year, and have spent the past few weeks talking about what we wanted, how much and where. The where is still iffy, but we know Tomatoes (duh), onions, cucumbers, peppers, green beans and snap peas. I can’t wait. Fresh green beans are the best, snap peas too. Last year we had a ton from my sisters garden, and my in-laws, but this year we will grow our own.
The worst part about it, planting indoors for 6 weeks due to snow, frost and still frozen ground. Tomatoes and a couple others will have to be started indoors, but not too many. It just makes a mess of things at times. Especially since we have to find a place with sunlight that Koda won’t get at. That is always a challenge.
And don’t get me started on flowers. I planted some tulips on my own this fall, and I can’t wait to see if they come in or not. I adore tulips. They are my favorite flower ever. But I need some more spring/summer flowers that are hearty…I kill flowers. It is really a gift I am told.
So, what flowers do you put in? What have you found that lasts? What veggies do you love to do?
