Yay for Digging!!

After many, many, many days of dreary rain in which we more than doubled our rain average for the entire month of March we have a break!!!!!
In spite of the mud I just could not resist the lure of the dirt!!
 Out came my pitch fork and grubby shoes and into the garden I went.  Oh, how good the earth smelled!!  How wonderful the crumbly soil felt under my fingers!!  Bliss!!
I got most of my veggie garden turned over until big belly syndrome took over and I just could not do any more - then I made my big boys go out and finish for me while I tried to soak away the aches and pains of digging while pregnant :0)!!  But truly, all the achiness was worth it!!!

So now that the turning part is over we will add some compost and hopefully get some early spring veggies planted very soon!!  I can hardly wait - my mouth is watering for my own homegrown veggies!!!  Happy Spring!!!!

Blessings,
Christine

YAY! I can so appreciate your excitement...wishing we'd have a break in the rain here for a few days. I did get out this past weekend and planted my lettuce, spinach, arugula and celery in my cold frame. Then started tomatoes and a few herbs and flowers inside...Oh and peppers too. Felt good! Now we just need some sunshine. :)

You take it easy, my friend! Enjoy your time, but don't overdo it! :)
