I'm thankful that we didn't get more snow yet,  we are having unseasonal weather though. Undecided

We should be getting the garden ready instead of trying to keep warm.  Yell

Are you thankful for anything today?  Smile

I'm thankful for the warmer weather and the sunshine that we've been having.  I've been in a sour mood lately and this seems to be helping a bit!  Should be a lovely weekend too!

What are you planting in your garden this year?  This is the first year we are really giving this a try so I wasn't quite sure what would work well.  We ended up with cucumber, lettuce, green beans, corn, and carrots.  I'm excited to see how it goes!

Hi, Grace, I love to plant a salad garden...different leaf lettuces, mustard greens and sorrel for a  spicy lemon like mix.   I love being able to pick my salads for my meaals.  

I like radishes, onions, cucumbers, carrots and tomatoes of course.

 I like to have a lot of herbs in my food, and I like perennial herbs with a few annual herbs.   I have  apple trees, raspberries, and peaches.  Asparagus is a beautiful vegetable as it matures enough to eat.    

I might try a few others too!  Tongue Out
