spring garden

The boys and I planted a spring garden with Grandpa Gillespie. We planted broccoli, cabbage, peas, spinach, butter head lettuce, Roman lettuce, carrots, onions, we have strawberries going from last year. I wish I would have had my camera with me, it's so cute when little kids help with the planting, next time. I love that Dan (aka. grandpa) helps me. I can't have the garden in my own yard so he offered his yard. When we got to his house he had already tilled the garden. so we just got to do the easy part. I am leaving for turkey tomorrow for two weeks. So hopeful when I get back everything will be sprouted. If you want to hear more about my trip look at Traveling Pansies blog we are going to try to update it everyday.

Its comming

Spring is almost here! My crocuses are coming out. Wyatt and Dean love finding new flowers in the flower beds. I can't keep Dean from picking them. I need to remind myself to plant more early spring bulbs next year. Flowers are a delight when the snow melts.
