It has already been Spring for over 48 hours, but in our neck of the woods it sure doesn’t feel like it. As I was organizing my photo albums I came across a couple of photos from summers past. Photos that made me remember the silky feeling of grass beneath my feet and the smells of fresh earth.

This year I’m really looking forward to sowing my garden. We are doing a combination of raised garden beds and containers. I’ll probably grow the same seeds we used last season which includes: beets, radishes, lettuce, tomatoes, carrots (LOTS of them), green beans, corn, strawberries, squash, watermelon, lavender, oregano, mint, thyme, parsley, and more. I’m hoping to also be able to can as much as possible to last us during our winters. That’s if Mr. T doesn’t eat it all! He has a thing for yanking the carrots and eating them – dirt and all!
