Oh where, Oh were can spring be!

Is it spring yet? Pablo is sitting at the window daily looking out like a little boy wondering when will spring come and he can go out and play again. I on the other hand, I’m planning the next round of seeds to plant.
On Jan 23rd I planted the following seeds;
Candy onions
Brussel sprouts
Fox Glove
Giant Pansy

We have sproutage!!! The candy onions, brussel sprouts, petunias & some of the geraniums have come up. I’m getting spring fever. It is taking a lot of restraint not to plant everything now and to stick with my plan.

Here we are again

 So Maine is getting it's first significant winter storm and what am I doing? No not shoveling, not yet anyway, no not sitting with hot cocoa in front of the fireplace (only electric one). I'm in my basement cleaning up some racks to put my seedlings on because I'm already thinking spring. I have got my seeds and seed starting soil. I have started to plan out the garden. I'm going to keep it very simple this year, stop laughing, you know who you are! So here we are again and this year I'm hoping to keep the blog more up to date and informative and just have fun with it. Any suggestion I would love to hear from you. Bye for now
