Today marks one year since I rather nervously began this blog! You can see my first post (with all the original typos!) here. I hardly dared expect that anyone would read it besides a few close gardening friends! But I'm so glad I did it! It has been a lot of fun, I've gotten to know more enthusiastic gardeners, and it has already opened new doors of opportunity that I wouldn't have dreamed of a year ago! Gardening is even better when it is shared, so thank you to all of you who have subscribed, and to those of you who comment...I love comparing notes on gardening with you!
So, yesterday was officially the first day of Spring. The sun finally came out after about 2 weeks of cloudy, snowy, gloomy weather. I spent part of the afternoon in the greenhouse getting things ready, and it was actually HOT in there! Some of my seedlings are out there soaking up the light today. They had gotten a little "leggy" from being in the house so long! I'll be planting lots more seeds soon. Looking back at this time last year, (blogging is also a great way to keep a garden journal!) I already had pepper and tomato seedlings up. I haven't even planted them yet this year! There is so much to be done! I'm hoping this sunny weather will hold out. The sky is the bluest blue today, and the sun shining on all that snow is almost blinding!
It also appears that we have even more snow on the ground than at this time last year. There isn't even so much as a dent in the snow to tell where my birdbath is!
That's about all I have to say for now, but I just couldn't let this day pass without a mention! :)
I am a passionate gardener and seed-saver, who also enjoys playing the violin and accordion, running, spending time with my 4 golden retrievers, keeping chickens, photography, and reading.
