Thinking about Spring...

Thinking about Spring...

The wonderhub was up early this Saturday morning. He had dismantled the Boy's fort a while ago and we had a big pile of boards in the backyard. He recycled it into raised beds for the front garden. Our house is on a mesa and the soil is pretty much adobe bricks that's great for growing citrus trees and artichokes. (which are pretty much big thistles) but not great for other plants.


Now they just need to be leveled up and filled with topsoil.


 The leftover bits will fit in as stepping stones.

The fish were happy to be fed.

I drew this this morning. 

Now, off to the market. Busy day! 

What do you think we should plant? I'm hoping for herbs and strawberries.

  1. Asparagus! Salad greens, snow peas, yard long beans....

  2. Marilyn,
    I suggest those purple green beans. they turn green when you cook them! Yum!

    They grow good for me where I live. I also grow tomato candy...aka Sweet 100 tomatoes.

    With 3 inches of snow outside my door, I am a little jealous! But glad you have got me thinking about spring!
