"My heart leaps up when I behold..." a garden in the making....(to borrow a few words from Wordsworth). Truly, I just love this time of year when the earth is awaking and putting on her green finery. Even on rainy, foggy days like to day, the earth just seems to hold a promise of things to come. Travis planted four rasberry plants at the edge of our garden, and the boys were cutting up the seed potatoes. We hope to have potato and pumpkin patches separate from the garden this year. The children all plant their own little gardens, so it gets quite crowded in the family garden! Last year some of their plots did better than we'll see what Happens!
