First Day of Spring

I just realized today is the first day of spring, although you wouldn't know it with the wind and rain here this week. I'm glad to have some bonus rain as we tend to be dry nearly all summer. As I lumber out of my blog hibernation (the last post was winter solstice? Really?) and settle in for the first post of the "official" growing season, I thought I'd share what I've brought inside today from our garden and spare the camera a soaking outside. In my hiatus we have remodeled our kitchen (almost done, everything goes more slowly with children) so while my husband took the boys outside in their rain gear I had some quiet time inside to make dinner and play around with the lighting in our new setup. What a very lovely way to spend the afternoon. Ahhhhh.

Happy First Day of Spring!
I made a batch of stinging nettle compost tea this winter and fed the entire garden with it last week, I look forward to showing you how well it all went! I'm about to don my rain gear and go join in some splashing while harvesting a new batch.
