Today is a really gorgeous day here! As you can see it’s around 80 degrees (note all the branches and grass are still brown). So if I didn’t have spring fever before – I really do now! I also know that it could be snowing this weekend, so I’ll just enjoy it while I can.
I’m using the nice weather to spend some time starting seeds for the garden, and some flower seeds too. It’s such a relaxing thing to do! I also believe that it’s important to play music while you do any sort of gardening activity. I think the music helps them grow. 🙂 I know this is just my own theory, but it can’t hurt can it? So I’ve just been putting seeds in dirt and singing. It’s a good day.
Today I started some jalapenos, some bell peppers, tomatoes, and some herbs. I’m also going to try starting some sweet william and canterbury bells. I’m so excited for spring!
I have other vegetables to plant, but I think most of them need to be sown directly into the ground. I’m hoping this weekend we can get the ground tilled up so I can get started planting spinach and lettuce and other early vegetables.
I also ordered chickens this morning for early April delivery! I am soooo excited about that. I can’t wait to get the little chicks!
I was also talking to my dad about buying a beehive and getting some bees started. My mom wanted to know if I was trying to start a little house on the prairie. *eye roll* It’s just been something that I’ve always wanted to do and I finally have the room and the time . . . so why not?
So, anyway. I’ve been busy starting spring cleaning and just getting really antsy wanting spring to get here. I have seen some buds on the trees (oh yeah, and those allergies are starting to kick up – YAY) so I know it’s right around the corner. Spring also mean softball for Gabby. I went to pick her up from practice the other day and I see her wearing this outfit:
I was surprised – usually she’s very stylish – I told her to make sure that people know her mother doesn’t dress her. She wanted to make sure I got a shot of the shoes too. Well, she does have a sense of humor – and enough self-confidence to be seen in this ensemble!
