New Life…

May 2, 2013

One of the most delightful things about a garden is the anticipation it provides.  ~W.E. Johns, The Passing Show

Winter is over and spring is here. I can’t believe that it is time for preparing for our yearly garden. Each and every year we plant a nice size garden. This year my sister-in-law (SIL) and I will be working as a team. We will be planting two gardens this year. One at my father in law’s (FIL) and one at her house for a grand total of 1,590 sq ft of garden space. We have begun the process of planning. Sadly, our current garden sizes are not big enough for our needs, today we have a meeting to see what we can do about it.  SIL has begun the process of planting seeds and growing our own plants. In March, they began to sprout and we did the happy dance. Our family LOVES to see the new life that comes from something as simple as seed becoming a plant.

Now that the plants have begun to sprout, we have been waiting for the weather to be right to till the ground. At that time the real work will begin. I can’t wait to get out into the fresh brown till ground. There is something about being barefoot in the freshly tilled ground and planting beautiful green plants. I am completely energized from this time, It is sort of like a new life is given to me. We will spend hours planning, planting, working and harvesting. Then the cycle will start all over in the spring again.

This year we have a decent list of items we plan to plant, for now I will share some pictures from March and April when the seeds began to sprout. Thank you to my SIL for taking the pics.  As we plant our garden, I will share the complete list with you.
