I’m ready for Spring. We had a really moderate early winter in Colorado – I was at the park with Thomas in a tank top several January days. But February reared its ugly head and I’ve got a big case of Spring Fever.
So, I’m planning our vegetable (and herb) garden. I’m making a conscious effort to be better about eating from the garden this year. I’m not a great vegetable eater, but I know the importance of A) eating healthily and B) setting a good example for my son who’s also not a great vegetable eater, so I’m committing myself to the process this year. Plus, I thought the garden would be a fun project for T and I to work on together this summer. I’ll have plenty of time on my hands this summer with a toddler and a newborn to have special projects for just me and Thomas, right? We don’t have a very big garden, and generally I successfully grow basil, one or two other plants (last year it was lettuce in spring and eggplant in the summer), and a too-late-for-my-patience-level harvest tomato. So this year I’m planning better.
Anyone else have their garden plans ready to go? I can’t wait to get the dirt under my fingernails – Mr. B turned over the bed yesterday and we’ll mark out the plots this week, then it’s lettuce time!
