SPRING is HERE! FINALLY! :-)
We have been outside a LOT in the last two days! And, we have been working on our garden! Hooray! You may remember a couple of weeks ago when I told you we had bought seeds for the garden. Well, this weekend, we started planting IN our garden. I am already looking forward to eating all the delicious foods we planted (or still have to plant).
Here's what we've done so far.
Last fall, we planted 25 garlic cloves, and they are coming up!
Then, we started seeds (way too early, I learned one day too late!) on March 1. We started three kinds of tomatoes, three or four kinds of peppers, broccoli, lettuce, basil and cilantro. These plants are so big now! We are going to buy pots and plant them in soil from our garden. That way we can take them in and outside for the next month, but hopefully they won't be too shocked when we transplant them. (I really have no idea if this will work.... can you tell I'm a novice gardener?!!)

A couple of weeks ago, Chris and the boys went out and dug the horseradish. They have been enjoying it on anything they can think of. I enjoy watching them eat it. :-P
