Looking forward to Spring

 Phil, that silly old groundhog didn't see his shadow this year. He is predicting an early spring.

Have you started planning your garden?
 It's so exciting to get the new seed catalog's in the mail this time of year.
 Wow, all the possibilities! Early Contender Bush Beans, Yukon Gold Potato's, tender sweet Carrots, Pixie Crunch Apples. I want them all!!!!

 In North Dakota the soil is so dark and rich, as soon as the snow melts off new seedlings are sprouting up. When the soil is damp and the weather  warm you can almost see the plants growing.

I can't wait to get started planting! And I can't wait for spring. They say that winter is a time for rest, but I spend it all waiting for spring.

I am "thinking" about my garden... we're still under about 3 feet of snow so I haven't quite made the leap to planning yet

I'm planting some colorful carrots this year. They're red, pink and yellow and I can't wait to eat them!
