Spring is getting closer...

Oh boy, next week is spring break! This past weekend I picked up my rhubarb, asparagus, and strawberry plants at D&B. So I am really ready now! I can hardly wait! In the meantime, there is still plenty of homework and tests this week. Thankfully the test on the muscles will be after the break giving me more time to memorize those. Take care everyone!

It's almost spring - yes, please...

It has been a hectic over the past few weeks, studying for a variety of tests and completing the necessary homework, all the time impatiently waiting for spring so I can get into the garden! All my seeds are now here and I have been planting everything in my dreams, planning which corner is going to get what, watching the flowers come up, and getting ready to dig into the many lucious tomatoes I plan on picking off my vines! My list of to-do's for spring break is growing everyday as well as.

The hatchery has their "chicks are in" sign out and I need to get the chicken coop cleaned up and spruced up as well. It's still a little cold though, so that goes on the spring break list. I haven't decided yet which breed I will get. I like the idea of a variety, so I may just get a few of each. I suppose it will largely depend on what they have available when I go in!

Tonight it is raining. It has been a while since we had any moisture, so it is good. Even though it has still been on the cooler side, it seems more and more like spring everyday. I keep watching the fruit trees for budding. It should be happening soon.

It won't be long now, before we are into spring fulltime!
