I am getting really, really REALLY eager to garden. So much so that I asked for (and received) some starts that were in the office, from some succulents, so I could plant something! They really seem to like the new digs, as it were, and are starting to grow some new shoots.
I go out as soon as it stopped raining, and looked at my garden area. Sort of like a small child, can I plant yet, can I plant yet? I know so very well I can't plant yet. If you can pick up a ball of dirt, and it falls apart when you let go, it's dry enough to plant.
So far, I can't find my hand for the mud... Sigh.
I keep talking about all the different things I'd like to do, I am seriously wondering if Husband has been keeping his hearing aid out on purpose. I guess I am getting just a little obsessive... Maybe.
However, one of the family members asked if I would grow some tomatoes for them. I asked what kind. There was a bit of a pause. Well, do you grow more than one?
Oh, you poor sheltered thing...
I grow tomatoes that are several different colors, I grow them for eating fresh, for drying, for cooking... I have grown as many as 12 different varieties at a time, just to see what some are like. I normally grow about 6 or so, as there are some others like, and some I grow for myself.
(My Mother will chime in at this point the irony, that I grow bunches and gobs of tomatoes, and I really do NOT like them fresh...)
Then the rest of the veggies, of course.
Yep, I am so looking forward to growing something! While it's not snowing here, I can relate to this meme all too well...
