Stuttering Shell: it's that time, again.

it's that time, again.

a couple weekends ago we purchased seeds for our spring/summer garden.  we sprouted our own seeds last year and were quite successful, so we're very excited to do the same thing this year.  we added a few new vegetables and herbs - dill, green onions, rocket {a.k.a. arugula}, kaleidoscope carrots, chives & pickling cukes - and we planted a few seeds we kept from our garden from last year - okra, string beans, sugar snap peas & jalapenos.  of course we have the requisite hot peppers, tomatoes, bell peppers & squash.  our basil & cilantro will come back on it's own.  same with the pineapple sage.  our rosemary plant is just plain awesome.  and, i'm hoping our lil' fig tree will give us plenty of fruit this year.  we are also growing mammoth sunflowers again this year AND malia asked if she could sprout her own flowers so she's growing marigolds, zinnias and cosmos.

all of the seeds have been planted & our kitchen table has turned into a make-shift greenhouse.  hopefully, in a few more weeks we'll have little seedlings.  we hope to get our garden planted by april {maybe sooner if punxsutawney phil was right}.  if last year was any indicator of our success, we should have a very bountiful harvest this year!
