Signs of Life

Although it was snowing earlier this week, the local flora has decided it's time to make an appearance -- and it's about time!!

This is my favorite time of the year -- when everything changes from dark and withered to lush and alive.

Tulips and Hyacinths

Accidental onions

Rhubarb and strawberries!

Elephant garlic

Red blossoms

Here's a little preview of what we have in store for the garden this year.

See that block of dead grass? That's going to be our root vegetable garden. Instead of building another raised bed, this year we are going to double-dig a bed. It's going to be a heck of a task, but I know a lady who said double digging was the best decision she's ever made -- next to marrying her husband!

We'll see how it goes. It's not raining now so I'm going to put on boots and get to digging -- it's garden time!!
