Spring garden

 It has been such a gorgeous spring so far. Already we’ve had a handful of days that feel like summer – warm, bright, full of early morning chirping birds. 

I’ve been sneaking out to the garden for half an hour (even an hour once!) when there is a baby minder near. So far I’ve planted a row of peas behind the raspberry canes my mom planted earlier this spring and I’ve planted a few pots with herbs and seeds for salad greens. And tomato and basil seedlings have sprouted inside. There are about a million more things I’d like to do, but baby calls loudly and often! I’m really looking forward to him being a little bit bigger and the weather a little bit warmer so we can spend more time together outside. And yes, I know, savour these moments…he’ll be grown up soon enough!

Here are a few photos of what’s already growing. Here’s hoping I have some pictures to post soon after all my work with the seeds.
