Preparing the Spring Garden

February is a slow month for projects at 765. Between work, travel, parades and the almost constant rain, there's little time or energy to sand the windows or work in the yard. (I think I said the same thing last year.) Last weekend we had a day of much needed sun which prompted the beginning of our Spring garden. We (Travis, me and the chickens) tilled up the dirt, added plenty of compost and created some rows for seeds. A few snow pea and tomato seedlings from the farmer's market are getting a head start in pots. But the best part of the garden right now? The strawberry plants. We may only get a couple at a time, but picking a strawberry when I get home from work is a welcomed treat.
