Simple Pleasures of Spring

It's spring and that means that it's time for this household to spend more time outside. This year, we're expanding our veggie garden a good bit, adding a new plot of about 10 by 60 feet, and enclosing both the new section and our existing raised beds with fencing. Hopefully, we can keep the hungry critters out of the garden area. We've redone a plot on the southern side of the house that will be the new home for tomatoes, onions and basil. An old section of purple cone-flowers has been moved to a plot right next to the house and all of the beds have been mulched recently, thanks to my generous neighbor. Potatoes and peas have been planted in the old raised beds, so we're looking for a prosperous growing season.
