February!

Okay, I’m probably not the only one in the area, but I am getting really hyped about spring.  I know what the groundhog said, but February is when the garden thinking starts in earnest around my house.

We have tons of seed we saved from last year, and I’m looking forward to a cool season garden come March.  That said, hubby and I are still debating what, if anything we’ll be able to plant and keep up with this summer.  I’ll have school and he’s got work.  Then there’s the writing, cooking, housework, exercise (though I must believe that gardening and housework count as exercise), and errands to do.

Gardening takes lots of care and time, and even though we did pretty good last year, our garden still didn’t get all the attention it needed, and I had last summer off from school.  We’ll see.  I have to plant something, I think, or I’ll go stir crazy.

As for our membership last year in our local CSA farm, it was awesome!  I still have jars of tomatoes that will take us well into tomato season this year.  We’ve also still got tons of apple jelly and pickles left to carry us through.

So the wind is blowing, there’s still white stuff in the forecast, but spring is so close I can taste it,  and I can’t wait to get out there and catch the world coming to life.  There’s nothing like springtime in Oklahoma’s Green Country.
