New England Spring...

Spring is here in New England!

Our strawberries, tulips, lilies, and irises have all started to peep out of the ground. How thrilling to see some green!

We've spent a lot of time raking, and just general spring cleaning in the yard.

We're planning on doubling (or more) our main garden this year, and have been busy starting some seedlings for early summer planting. So far we have tomatoes, basil, lots of lettuce, green peppers, broccoli, and celery growing in the house and I'm planning on starting some annual flowers, cucumbers and watermelon soon. I've thought about using our incubators to help germinate the seeds (since we're keeping our house a cool 50-55* right now) but so far I've resisted because I know how much electricity those things suck up :P

And just like a true New England Spring, we're supposed to have a late season Nor'Easter tomorrow! 6-14 inches of wet, heavy snow is being predicted...Ugh!
