We've had quite a bit of snow here in Kansas over the last week or so, which has certainly dampened my winter sowing experiment a bit... before the snow my lettuce started to sprout, but it hasn't had enough heat to grow any further. Hopefully this snow storm counts as the lion of March (albeit a week early) and we'll get some lamb the next month.

Little lettuce sprouts!

I also started my part time job at the greenhouse again this week. It was awesome to go into a place where there were green plants; the pansies were even blooming.

The best way to get back into a groove is just to go for it right? Well here goes blogging:

I took some pictures the other day of my garden, and I wanted to put it up so I can see a difference once everything starts growing again. So far it's just a few bulbs popping up, but since I didn't live here in the spring last year, I'm not sure what they are, so it's exciting!

I'm also experimenting with some seed starting this year with the winter sowing method. So far nothing has sprouted, but it's still a bit cold.... I'm planting some flowers and veggies, plus a few perennials.

Here you can see one side of the front garden and evidence of my winter sowing (milk jugs).
This is the south side and the only area to get any sun. The buckets will house tomatoes!
This area is pure shade, but I built a little bed so I hope I can grow a few flowers at least.
These guys are a couple of blueberries I got last fall, hopefully they'll get busy this summer.
Evidence of growth. I'm not sure what these are, daffodils maybe?
