Is it Spring time yet?

This is a picture of last year's garden. This year's garden will be much bigger and hopefully much better, since I have added compost and organic fertilizers to the area. The soil looks good here, but there is very little organic matter. But at least there aren't many rocks either, which is saying a lot for my area. My biggest resource is rocks.

I'm ready for spring! It is time for the cold to move on out and let some better gardening weather move in. But I couldn't wait any longer and last weekend I planted some beet seeds, and of course after this week's rain and freezing temps, I'll likely have to plant them all again. But it felt good in the meantime to be doing something in the garden besides wishing.

Hi Kristena, I missed the eclipse, too :( I am so ready for spring to arrive. I'm tired of being cooped up inside!
