I put up a post on my blog-home at http://www.maryjanesfarm.com/.
It's about books.
Come on over and share your favorite children's book.
Here's the link.
It's February 1st, so it's time for me to think about spring plantings.
Spring is my favorite garden.
I mean, what's not to love?
Sugar Snap Peas.
Little baby radishes and turnips.
There's just something about going out each evening to pick our salad for dinner.
And those Sugar Snaps. They just might be my favorite vegetable EVER.
But what a mess my garden is. I no longer have a fence around the main garden patch. Last year's attempts to plant down there were frustrating. Dogs and deer and bunnies. And snakes.
The garlic was the only thing they left alone. Thank goodness for that.
What to do. What to do.
Last year I created little garden spots beside my house. The snakes, bunnies, and deer stayed out. The dogs did not. I was able to harvest a lot of lettuce, though. And some Sugar Snaps. The dogs love peas!
I spent a few minutes this weekend down in my main garden patch, hoe in hand. The dirt was soaked, but the sun was out and it was 67 degrees and I couldn't help myself.
I've got to come up with a way to CHEAPLY keep everybody (except me) out of my garden.
I would love to do a little white picket fence down there. I wonder how much that costs? And if I can install it myself? I've got to do something. I have to garden this year. Have to!
One thing I know.
February 1st is the day I clean out my bluebird box.
Come with me.....
It's a little damp out, but put on your boots and come on.....
