Okay, so anyone else got garden ITCH going on? Ya know, this is February and this is when I start getting all excited about the garden! I have looked through all my seed catalogs, my eyes are all glazed over from looking at all the pictures of huge vegetables and gorgeous flowers. My little heart gets all pumped up for some dirt (oh yeah, not dirt,,,, it is SOIL) action.

To me a garden is kinda like childbirth. In childbirth, women forget about how much pain they went through and how miserable they might have been.

Well in a garden, a gardener forgets how many weeds they had to fight and how grassy it got; how miserable it got.

I am all excited because this year I may have a gardening partner. My husband always helps when he can, but this year his cousin wants to put in some vegetables. She is a master gardener, but lives in town. We always have a good time when we get together and have a lot in common. I know she loves to dig in the soil too. Should be fun!

So time to start planning, get that garden thinking going and pray the snow goes away soon!!!!


  1. You are so fortunate to have the space for a garden ... and smart to use the land to your advantage. Here's hoping spring finds its way to you very soon. Blessings, Tammy

  2. We're all so ready to get into the garden. It was warm here yesterday so I could get outside for awhile -- how it totally changes my mood. Here's to an early Spring!!!! Jan

  3. Oh, I LOVE IT!!! Your images, go straight to my soul... I am blessed with a 'black thumb', but a few of my hardiest plants, survive... I always dream of having my yard, look like yours...
    Simply Beautiful...

  4. I'm with you! I can't wait to get out to my gardens again!!!
    Beautiful pictures!

  5. I've never had a garden with vegetables. It must be so nice. How wonderful that you will have a partner this year. Sounds like fun.
    Have a great weekend.

  6. Oh yes! Although my Mom-in-law does all the gardening, I get to reap the benefits! Your photos are really pretty - and makes me long for spring!

  7. Oh wow. What a beautiful garden you have, or will have soon again. I wish I knew how to garden.

  8. What a big beautiful garden you have. I know that it's a full time job. It won't be to much longer. Have you got your seed and plants ordered?

  9. My little bit of a garden is pretty easy to manage - but those pictures do get me excited.

  10. One of the best investments one can make is to invest in a garden that could supply fresh veggies and fruit to the family needs.
    Good Luck with the planning and the actual working!
