Oh, it is that time of year again! I don't get crazy about much but spring, oh spring! Planting season. Play in the dirt season. It's like I walk into the local nursery and get high from a combination of all the oxygen emitting plants and the possibility of another season of growing our food and having fresh cut flowers. Really, I should not be aloud to go to Home Depot this time of year unchaperoned.
And you know what's so awesome this season? I had several plants go to seed out of pure neglect last fall at the end of the drought. Because we were still in a drought all winter I didn't think much of it but guess what? I have around 11 basil plants--in fact way too many to manage myself so when they get a bit bigger I will be sharing them with friends! Plus I have close to 4 dozen zinnia seedlings and a few other little surprises growing.
Another awesome thing about this season? I have a little helper to sit next to me, eating Cheerios, dancing to the Beach Boys and pulling leaves off my newly planted begonias. Ah, spring is good!
