Spring is Here

It was a rainy and cold weekend here, so I didn't do much in the garden. Which is alright because the almanac says " march 23-26, a barren period.

I did, however, make more milk jug greenhouses and have a few project wounds--a couple of burns and I got bit by the drill bit Still working on that post, though. 

I'm so excited about re-vamping the garden and preparing for the growing season. I'll leave you with some images that inspire me.... in reality, some are do-able and then some are just eye candy for now.

I will be trying this system of companion and beneficial planting.  Along with some tepee forms for the tomato plants    source

I would love to get some sort of beans and or peas running on this type of trellis. To give the garden some character.   source 

I will be busy in the garden this week. The weather forecast looks good. Here are some previews of what I will be posting this week.
