Spring Has Sprung Once More

The weather here has just been getting better and better. Even with all the rain and thunderstorms, at least it is warm. Don’t even have a fire going this week.

This past weekend, Kevin and I worked on the greenhouse. We redid the growing beds and covered the roof with new plastic. And we planted lettuces, cabbages and onions. They are beginning to sprout and I can already taste fresh salad in my near future.

We also started tomatoes, peppers and eggplant in peat pots inside the cold frames. With any luck they will be strong plants by the time we’re ready to put them in the garden in May. We still have to till the garden for the year and hopefully we’ll have time to get the potatoes and onions in the ground on Saint Patrick’s day.

Zayden continues to grow like a weed. It’s hard to believe he’s almost three months old, but he’s beginning to laugh and has truly discovered he has a voice and isn’t afraid to let anyone hear it. I can’t believe I’m having so much fun watching him every night while Mom works. Sometimes I just look at him in amazement – he is just so cute and perfect.

Tried to upload the latest picture of Zayden and Kevin, but can't seem to get it to work tonight, so I'll save that for another day. (by then, I'll have another favorite picture, I'm sure).

For anyone following the website, I'll be updating it with at least three new articles in the gardening project section by the weekend.
