Can you feel it? The birds are chirping, the sun is shining, and the people are smiling! Ahh … Spring is in the air. And it has made its way into our little cottage.
And what have we here? Are those spinach leaves? Why yes I think so! My family has its fair share of seasoned, at-home gardeners, but somehow the green thumb gene skipped right over me. I keep planting though, every year. I planted this spinach in the fall, ignored it real good, and then surprise… Spring spinach. I will be attempting tomatoes for the umpteenth time soon, and as always I will somehow manage to muster up much enthusiasm. Even though, I have never grown an edible tomato — ever. Fingers crossed!
