Prepping the Garden

The sun is coming out, coats are coming off and daylight savings has kicked in. You know what this means? It means that spring in almost upon us.

From looking at the weather this week, it would seem to be approaching at a rapid rate and I am so very glad. I love warm weather, I love the feeling of the sun on my back and I love to see the world around me come into bloom.

Springtime means more events, more time spent outside and time to tend to the garden. So far we have been prepping the C of I Organic Garden for the spring/summer. The soil looks good and we have made an outline of what we want in the garden.

Soon we will be off to the greenhouse to grow some starts and once the last frost is gone it is time to plant! We are very excited about this year’s garden and this year we even have a master gardener working with us to help us! I will keep you posted on the developments!
