We're Digging It

  • April snow
    What a cruel trick the weather played on all the daffodils and hummingbirds that have now been spotted in Indiana.
  • Getting a head start
    Last Sunday was a beautiful day to work in the garden. I triple hoed my vegetable garden and buried a soak hose in preparation for the upcoming season.
  • Seedlings are off to a good start
    It has been a little over a week since I started some vegetable plants from seeds. 52 out of 56 tomatoes seeds have germinated so it looks like I will be giving away quite a few plants.

Porch surprise

Sent to We're Digging It this weekend:

The kids and I found this in a hanging begonia basket last night when out watering plants. There is a fourth egg this morning. We're excited to have them right on the front porch where we can watch them hatch and grow.
