posted by soe 1:56 am

As I mentioned yesterday, I spent several hours last weekend finishing my garden prep: The beds have been cleared of dead leaves, which I use during the winter to keep the ground from hardening too much during the off season, and I’ve planted a bunch of seeds — greens and peas, as of right now.

My garden, last Sunday:

It must be so exciting to see your very own plants coming up. I love your violets, as always. Mine will be out any day now.

The return of plants is the greatest joy… those violets! I love them!
