Welcome Spring!

I realize spring has already sprung, but here in Northeastern Pa we are just now starting to see the rebirth of trees, grass, and flowers, and oh what a glorious time of the year it is.

For me, with the melting of the snow, the thawing of the lakes, and the buzzing of the birds and bees comes the desire to shed the coat and gloves and get out side to do some gardening, and I can't wait to get started.

So far, I've pruned the apple trees, planted some wild flowers and a small herb garden, and have all my flower and vegetable seeds organized as to when I can start to plant and where.

As for the vegetable garden...this is my first time taking a whack at it. I am both excited at the prospect of having a bountiful harvest, and a little worried that I will kill the produce before it even beings. It's definitely going to be a trial and error experiment, but I am determined.

If you are an experienced vegetable gardener and have any helpful hints or words of a advice for me I would be most appreciative. :)

Wish me luck! And Happy Spring to y'all!!


  1. Already planting a garden? You are much farther ahead then we are.

  2. I love this time of year too . You are so ambitious. A garden, a herb garden,pruning! I wish you success. I tend the herb garden here and my husband tends the orchard and vegetable garden. I am afraid I am not good at vegetable gardening, herbs seem easy and tend themselves quite well once planted in a friendly place.

    I am interested in the questions you have posted about ETSY in previous posts. I have sold some things on ETSY but am still mystified as to what will bring more success...guess a LOT of time tending to ETSY would help, but then who will tend my gardens and flocks?

    I am wishing you luck~and Happy Spring to you.

  3. I love this time of year too! I long for it dearly in the middle of winter :) I don't have much of a green thumb, so I don't have any tips for you :) Best wishes for a bountiful garden!!
