It’s beginning to look like SPRING!
The snow is starting to melt.... granted as I took this picture this morning it is snowing, but not enough to stick around hopefully.
The garden is slowly starting to awake from its winter sleep, however it will likely be sometime before things dry up and all the frost is out of the ground. This is Saskatchewan after all it we could still be in for a few more snow storms! Mr. Pickles does have the manure all ready to go at the farm though so the sooner we can work that stuff in the better.
While we were in the city yesterday for my Dr Appointment we did a bit of seed shopping to help cheer me up. Although initially maddening since I didn’t bring my seed list with me it was fun to look through everything and buy lots of seed packets!
I ended up buying a few packages of the wrong seeds and forgot about a few others, but for the most part I think I bought everything that I needed plus a few more..LOL
I didn’t buy any tomato seeds since this is my first year starting seed inside. I think if everything I start early this year survives and produces well I will give it a try next year. However for the 2012 growing season I am going to by my tomato plants from the greenhouse!
So now I better get my garden plan....planed!
