Spring Is Coming!

I finally, actually, ordered all my seeds for the upcoming season.  I wish I had gotten my act together sooner, but alas, I did not.  But, my seeds are officially ordered and on their merry little way to my eager hands.  I am so excited, I can almost taste the green zebra tomatoes, the bull's horn peppers, ground cherries, and brandywines.

I also included some culinary and medicinal herbs like basil, parsley, meadowsweet, valerian, and lady's mantle.  I can't wait to make some pesto, or a meadowsweet tincture, Or put my ass to sleep with some valerian root.

I dug out some blackberry today in the garden that I missed at the end of summer.  I didn't get very far before my shoulder started hurting, so my hubby took over, and I gathered up those ridiculously pesky vines that he dug out and tossed in my direction.

It felt good to be in the dirt.
