G is For Gardening
Spring has finally arrived. Our tulips are in bloom and the spouse mowed the lawn for the first time this year. We've (and by we, I mean the spouse) tilled the garden. This morning I planted onion sets. I've got seedlings of tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers in little pots in the dining room. Every morning I set them outside to get some sun and bring them back inside in late afternoon. I always worry when I plant the seeds that nothing will grow and it is still a miracle to me that I manage to actually germinate seeds and create little plants.
This year we are planning a large garden. We learned from our experience last year and are planting wider rows and staggering our planting schedule so that we will have plants ready to harvest at different times. We're planting more onions and less tomatoes.
In a few weeks we will begin to harvest lettuce for our salads and for the next five months I won't need to buy it at the grocery store. I'm so happy that spring is here.
