I missed my 1st Bloggiversary!
I had it listed on my calendar as March 25th, so imagine my surprise when I sat down to write this post and went back to link my 1st post and saw that it was on March 1st! Seems like I can't keep up this Spring in any fashion! With my belated 1st Bloggiversary in mind, here's a link to my very first post, and if that didn't bore you to tears, here are some random shots of Spring taken yesterday... the suburban homestead is waking up!
Random bulbs (I'm not a bulb person, so I can't tell you what they are, I let my kids plant them so it's always a surprise when and where they pop up!)
I was stressing my 0% germination on some old chive seed I had, no worries, I had some winter over and are now growing like crazy!
The biggest surprise: my potted Fig tree made it through the snowy winter with no protection and is budding out!
The shallots and garlic have resumed their growth, can't wait to harvest them as I ran out of
both last month.
Now, to celebrate, I am taking the morning off of weeding tomorrow (it's raining & cold anyways!) and working on hubby's "surprise" (that he knows about because I can't keep my mouth shut!). More on that later when he returns from sea.
A big thank you to all who follow me and my misadventures in trying to homestead in a military world - what an oxymoronic thing that is! I am so glad to have all of you to exchange advice, ideas, and just share our love of natural food & raising happy, healthy families. And I didn't realize when I started this how much I would learn about different varieties of veggies, and different climates, from the Canadian Border down to Florida & Texas and East and West Coasts... wow we bloggers are are prepared bunch if we have to move suddenly, aren't we?! Love and Luck in the Garden to you all this year!
