While much of the country is embracing spring, in our area winter has overstayed it's welcome. Spring tried to grumble its way in yesterday with a nice little thunderstorm and I'm just waiting for the temperatures to reach that spring warmth.
In the meantime, I'm dreaming my early garden bed and trying to figure out how gardening is going to work with a two-year-old helper this year. We'll be working on our colors in an attempt to distinguish between ripe and not-so-ripe tomatoes and strawberries. I think weeding is going to have to be done when my copy-cat isn't looking, or she may "weed" my whole garden. While my brain is working overtime on the protection needed to preserve my crops from a toddler, I'm also looking forward to teaching her about planting and seeds. It's about time to gather up all the gardening related story books we have and add them to the story stacks around the house.
While we were at the children's museum this past week, we practiced planting skills. We'll be planting for real soon enough!
