Mary, Mary Quite Contrary.....

How does your garden grow?

I don't know about hers but mine is growing in my pantry.

All the tomatoes are up.

And the squash, and even some of the watermelon.

Ben is sad though.

His precious pepper plants never came up.

So he replanted them last night.

We are so ready for spring and there is still no spring in sight here.

Can't even see the ground yet for all the icky snow and ice everywhere.

"Spring!!!!! WERE ARE YOU?????????"

We can't wait to run barefoot in the sweet smelling grass.

We can't wait to dig our toes in the black warm dirt.

We can't wait to go outside and not have to bundle up for fear of frostbite.

We can't wait to ride our bikes and go for long walks in the evenings.

We even can't wait for that first mosquito bite!

Yes, you heard me right!

I am so sick of winter right now that I would give anything to get a giant mosquito bite on my bum just so that it could be summer!

That tells you right there how much we need spring! 


  1. I'm totally with you! (except for the mosquito bite thing!)

  2. I am SO ready for Spring too - but it seems just when you think it's right around the corner...it snows again!! Why again, do we live in Minnesota!? :) Ur so on top of things with your gardening - makes me think I should get going!!
