I am ready for spring! I don’t know about you but this winter seems to be dragging. It could be that my family has been cooped up for three weeks alternating sickness or the fact that we’ve had almost no snow to play in this winter but I am so ready for spring! What do I do when I’m ready to see some new life and encouragement? I plant things.
Seriously, I know it’s only February but one of the benefits of living in the South is sometimes these winter experiments work!!! So, the other day I drug out my little shovel, my rake and my newly delivered bag of seeds and headed to the back 40 (square feet of raised bed.) After a quick perusal of my stash I decided to experiment with sweet peas, broccoli, radish and beets. Their not called winter veggies for nothin’ (I hope!) So in they went with a good dousing of MegaSea from Sweetcorn Organic Nursery and a healthy sprinkling of MegaStart worked into the soil.
I have hopes, high ones! It’s supposed to be 60 dregrees today so I’m thinking I should be picking peas by Easter, right?!? Well, maybe my patience will be exercised in this endeavor, but the hope that spring is coming will keep me encouraged for another few weeks til I see the redbuds showing signs of life.
