Spring Has Sprung or Dirt Under My Nails

 Spring has sprung.

" Spring Is Calling",  and we answered the call!

Sparky turned the soil and I planted the seeds.
There's something truly wonderful about the scent of fresh turned earth.

 
Together we covered them up. Prefect team work!
We plan to build a second box garden this year. 
But the peas are always the first thing to be planted. 

So, it's official, spring has sprung, and the peas are in!!!! 
My spring blooms  are reaching for the sunshine, look at these lovelies.

   I hear spring calling you too. Will you answer?

Happy Spring!

We answered our call yesterday, and I loved every minute of it! I posted some pics, stop by when you have a free minute.

makes me deep down glad
to see those little furrows
with seeds freshly tucked in
and ready to start their
journeys.
Oh happy Spring!

Yep! It's calling me too!....I'm gonna answer, but not with a garden. I'm thinking about crocheting Spring wedding jewelry maybe. We'll see!! :-) Whatever I do, it'll be nice to do it in some sunshine, instead of piles of snow!! ^_^

Spring is peeking out in Chicago, but it is much to early to plant anything. Now, I cannot wait.

Fondly,

Happy spring Katherine. My bulbs are already blooming and I will pick them for a bouquet this morning. How wonderful to be greeted by daffodils in March.

We will be tilling our garden the first of the month. Our first crop is peas too. We had about 13 rows of peas last year and still have some leftover. I think we need to cut that number in half. Best of luck and Happy Spring.

Spring is rushing into NC and everything is bursting into blossom. Your garden is looking great and I hope you have a wonderful harvest later. Personally I do not have the time or patience to deal with a garden especially after my last effort when the worms tried to destroy all my joy. Now I look forward to the opening of our farmers market and reap their bounty. Have a great rest of the weekend.

I love this little verse....
"Spring has sprung!
The grass has riz!
I wonder where the flowers is??"
Not many flowers at my place yet. I am still raking brown leaves out of the bushes!
LOVE love LOVE your boxed garden!!

I can hardly wait to get my hands in the dirt. It is still rainy cold here so not dirt yet. But very soon. Maybe next weekend. I hope. Visiting from Sunday Storlling Hop.
Blessings

Spring has certainly sprung in my little corner of the world today Katherine! Clear blue skies with warm sunshine, and it's actually been warmer. Yay! I've been working in the garden for most of the day. It's so good to get back out there again and see everything coming back to life.

Kathy said...

I greatly admire people that aren't afraid to get dirty. I don't do it, but love to reap the rewards of those that do!

Jacqui said...

Spring is in the air and today was the Spring Equinox, but we are still not warm enough to plant!
Enjoy your garden, and your peas!!

Oh, we are no where near planting season around here! The bulbs are just starting to pop up, but I think the ground is still very hard.

Miz Helen said...

Hi Katherine,
I was so happy that you stopped by to have tea with me today and talk about our garden. I just love the smell of the dirt and carefully placing the seeds in the row. I just had to come see what you were planting today. I look forward to our visits.
Best Wishes,
Miz Helen
