spring for me is about getting out in the garden and seeing the plants almost growing before my very eyes.
i'm awaiting the seeds of rainbow, yellow pear and cocktail cherry tomatoes from Green Harvest to emerge from their soil-filled cardboard tubes. golden nugget pumpkin and spacemaster cucumber shouldn't be far off sprouting too.
the society garlic and comfrey cuttings sit by the back step in their concrete pots, reminding me to fill the watering can up and give them a drink.
upon the kitchen bench sits a pyrex bowl overflowing with fresh eggs. the squawking that can be heard indicates another warm egg is ready for collection.
it really is a lovely time of year to be outside in the sunshine planning, working and dreaming for the months ahead.
how is your garden coming along? what seeds are you planting at the moment?
in Spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt
