Signs of Spring

After what felt like the longest winter in the history of the universe, it is finally spring here in New England! We’ve been soaking up as much sunshine as possible and enjoying finally getting to work outside (and not freeze).  We’ve got big plans for this spring / summer and we’ve already started on some of them. 
We’ve got seeds starting on our big dining room windowsill.  Tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers.  We’ll add herbs like basil, dill and cilantro once we transplant everything outside. 

I’m still trying to figure out if I’m going to add anything else to the garden this year but for now these little guys are looking great!

I won’t be growing anything in this bed.  The Ladies have decided its the perfect place for a dirt bath and they are not giving it up.  Its too bad cause I thought some pretty flowers in front of the house would look a bit better than dirty chickens.

After much debate on our Facebook page, we decided that this was a magnolia tree, or rather what was left of a magnolia tree.  It had been cut down by former owners and had just a bunch of shoots lefts.  It was a beautiful surprise to find it out in the back yard.

Have signs of spring started showing up where you live?

  1. Yes, this has been one long winter! I have tomatoes and peppers started, which seem to be doing quite well. I want to start summer squash and cukes next. And hopefully get peas and spinach in the ground before the next bit of nasty weather we are expecting at the end of the week.

  2. Yes, but boy has our spring weather been strange! Wind, wind, wind in April. Yesterday it was 90 degrees. Today it's raining! Go figure! My garden, however, is doing okay through it all. The beets and carrots didn't like the wind, but I already have squash almost ready to eat! I found you on the Barn Hop.

  3. We have little seedlings in our house too. I love watching them grow. A few things are shooting up outside too but we just lost are snow (there are actually still a couple of piles) so not a lot is up yet. I did start a couple tomato and pepper plants in January to try to grow indoors and they are blooming and putting on fruit right now and that has been so fun to watch close up!
