It's the day I've been waiting for, the official first day of spring. With garden supply orders arriving all this week for our backyard makeover I'm very excited to jump into this new season and get my hands dirty. Already we've received some of our terrace board and clips, some chicken supplies and our wood stain. This Friday the big wood order will arrive for our raised beds. It's an exciting time around our house.
With all of the new space to plant this season I'm excited to be trying some new seeds and plants. We did a big seed order with Baker Creek Seeds back in January and the sprouts are all doing well. I'm really excited about our Dragon Tongue Bush Beans and Purple Podded Pole Beans which are already going nuts indoors. We will also direct sow many varieties and log the results to see which plants do better overall.
Are you noticing all of the blooms? Our nectarine tree is going full swing with pink blossoms and our apple tree is just starting to show it's buds. Spring is such a wonderful time of year to celebrate growth, new beginnings and life and I can't help but be excited for all that is in store for us this season.
