Spring Planting

010Well, with spring having arrived it is time to amend our dirt and get to our summer planting.  I did not, under any circumstances, think gardening was at all cool or interesting growing up.  It always seemed the realm of gray haired old people – or at least people who should be old and have gray hair.  Now that I am old and cannot pluck out all my gray hair anymore, gardening seems to make more sense.  Not sure if that is a good thing, but anyways…

As a parent I appreciate what our garden teaches our girls.  They complain about watering of course, and run hot and cold on the whole pulling weeds thing, but they have a good time digging up potatoes and pulling up carrots.  And there is no shriek like that that comes from finding a steamed caterpillar in the broccoli we harvested for dinner.  Damn things are a perfect broccoli shade of green, no matter how carefully I look for them one always seems to slip by.
