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.

  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!
