Vegetable Dreaming

All this uncharacteristicly warm winter weather has emboldened me; I've decided to get my hands dirty and work out in the garden.
While I am probably foolish to think of planting so early, I have a hunch that those $1.86 packets of seeds will pay off.  And if they don't, well I'm just out ten bucks.
Of course I'm not talking corn or tomatoes here, but hardy crops like spinach, arugula, Swiss chard and radishes.
After a little sweat and toil--which felt really good--I prepped the soil, added some Bumper Crop (good stuff!) and planted a few rows.  Oh, I relish the hopeful thought of some backyard greens in a month or two.  Wish them luck!


  1. It's been super warm here too!! High of 53 predicted for today. My pansies from last fall never really died...I can hardly believe it! We've even had some hard freezes, but not for extended periods of time. They are saying allergy season is going to be bad...but I can't think about that right now! Hope your veggies produce a bumper crop!

  2. We just planted basil and tomatoes in inside planters today.

  3. Hopefully March will come in like a lamb! :)

  4. Hey, I don't think it's silly of you-It's something that you enjoy so I say go for it! :)

    I can't wait to see what comes of your hard work ^.^

  5. I'm starting my seeds for the spring too--I'm so excited about it! Love the rainbow carrots--so pretty. Good luck with your garden!

  6. Definitely I wish them luck. Grow, veggies, grow!


I'm a good listener...comment away!
