The phrase “Spring is in the air!” can be taken literal on this first day of Spring. It’s every where: all over ours cars, all over my dogs, all over our balcony.
To celebrate this beautiful first day of Spring, I started the first seeds for our vegetable garden! I’ve been pining to start a garden for years now. I even attended a short “beginner’s guide to gardening” class last year. At the time, we were still renting a house, and was not given ‘permission’ to dig up the back yard, so the only option I had was container gardening. But I never did it. I think because I let myself get overwhelmed with all of the logistics of gardening: types of soils, lighting, timing, spacing, etc. etc. etc. But not this year. No excuses. I don’t expect it to turn out perfectly, so I’m ready to learn a lot this first go ’round. I’m pretty excited. And impatient. Maybe I’ll learn some patience along the way as well.
