Let the planting begin

Category: Liberty's "Victory" Garden | Posted: Tue May 22, 2012 1:48 am

Hello all my GS friends. I haven't written since Christmas when my garden was under a blanket of snow. I sorry I haven't been involved through the winter and early springtime seasons. My first year of teaching high school English was far more busy than I ever expected it to be. A bit of recap... I became the sole adviser for the Speech and Drama team. We had ten weekend meets plus state (three of my students went -- two more than last year), we did an Autumn and Spring drama production. My husband and I chaperoned three dances. Four students started a writing club and needed an faculty sponsor --> me. It grew to over fifteen students. Plus my husband had his more than full time job. So whatever time we had left was spent with each other.

Oh, and we celebrated our first anniversary.

But all that aside, it's planting season again and I'm extremely excited. My wonderful hubby spent the last month getting compost and manure mixed into the garden, plus he found it in his heart to dig up another 150 square feet of garden. He has to do the digging. I simply don't have the body weight to get the shovel into the hard Wyoming soil.

I've been anxiously waiting to get my planting done once more. And tonight {{{{ trumpet fanfare }}}} I planted. I only got kale, parsnips, and cucumbers put in, but it's a start.

Thanks to all of you who gave me a ton of useful advice last year. I look forward to calling upon your expertise again this year.

LET THE PLANTING BEGIN!!!
