.happy first day of spring!.

meet tom bombadil

the garden is slowly getting on its feet. we've had a few awesome days of sun and warm weather and the garlic and daffodil bulbs i planted last year are sending shoots peeking out over the layer of leaf mulch i spread at the beginning of the winter. my raspberry plant is covered in new buds. the seeds i started just a week ago are growing like crazy! i totally missed the seed swap i was supposed to go to today because i was in the providence St patrick's day parade with the providence roller derby and it ran overtime. but still, i am super excited about this growing season! i learned a lot last year (like don't plant everything at once, stagger it, or you'll have way too much lettuce and it will all go to seed before you can eat it). i got us a new garden gnome, tom bombadil, to join our gnome from last year (john barleycorn). this is going to be fun! now if it only wont rain all summer like it did last year . . .

even if you just keep a planter of fresh herbs in your kitchen - you'll have the joy of growing a living thing AND you'll impress your friends by cooking "fancy" dishes with fresh sprigs of rosemary, etc!!
