I love the first few days of spring, like the most of us!
I always start thinking about getting my hands in some dirt and planting things in the garden.
Today the raised beds get a little love. Time to start mixing up the soil.
Just think... in just a few months these bed will be overflowing with tomatoes and other yummy edible gifts.
One of my favorite things to do in the spring is plant Morning Glory and Moon Flower seeds. I get a lot of satisfaction from playing with the soil and seeds indoors when its usually still chilly outside. There are many ways to start seeds indoors. I have even used casserole dishes to hold seedlings in the past! lol I love doing it this way because there's no pot to dispose of and the roots aren't disturbed when you plant them in the ground outside.
My tip : If it seems overwhelming to plant lots of seeds, but you really like the idea - just pick two packages of seeds and go from there. Life is busy. Keep it simple. Get the juice out of life without stressing yourself out too much.
