I love beginnings. I get the same feeling at the beginning of gardening season that I used to get at the start of a fresh school year: new possibilities, new notebooks, crisp new seed packets, it all evokes that excited optimism! Here's what we've got going on in our little patch of earth.
There will definitely be random lettuce plants and onions all over the garden as the kids are very eager planters. I will have to remember next year how much they enjoy planting onions. Maybe it's something about how they already look like what they will become, just smaller, or how they're so much easier for little fingers to handle than most microscopic garden seeds. I'm still finding baby onions tucked in the most random spots in the garden.
Oh, and new shoes, of course! Bogs sent me a pair just in time for my birthday and I totally love them. I've even been wearing them out and about to run errands on rainy days, which we've (thankfully!) had quite a few of this spring. I think they're definitely cute enough for a run to the store, don't you?
Remember Sam's seed experiment? The only one that seems to have made it is the garbanzo bean, but it's thriving! How fun to be able to harvest our own garbanzos; I wonder what they'll look like?
What's growing in your garden this year?
