Almost spring!

Dear gardening friends!

I noticed that most of the "big box" stores down here are starting to get their spring veggies and such in. I couldn't resist buying two tomato plants the other day even though I know we'll get at least one more big freeze. Weather here near Austin has been CRAZY, MAN, CRAZY! 80-degrees yesterday, 35-degrees last night...makes for some anxious gardeners!

I'm hoping to load up my EarthBox with peppers this year. I had two plants in pots that did very well last year, and lasted up until almost Christmas.

Hope the sun is shining where you are, and here's wishing for a great garden season in 2008!

happy trails,

bobbi c.

What a wonderful blog!

I'm putting the link on my own, and will follow with interest as the growing season gets under way :-)

Oh, me, we had that kind of spring last year, it was awful! This year has been beautiful and mellow. Hope your next one will be so as well.

Thanks for stopping by, y'all! It warmed up today, almost too warm after such a cool night. My poor plants look Ok so far, though. Keeping my fingers crossed....
