Let the planting begin

The garden has been tilled! DH decided to go for it and hope that the ground was dry enough and it worked. The garden is ready for raking and seed sewing. I hope to get out of work early enough today to clear some of the rocks from the yard (that were "discovered" by DH while tilling) and rake the dirt into rows and mounds. I will probably plant some seeds even though the frost free date is in May. Seeds are inexpensive.

DH went out on the boat yesterday, the first trip this year. No luck with fishing but he had a beautiful day.

Last night was errand running night, so the only knitting that happened was 2 rows on the circular shawl. Traffic was not (for a change) heavy enough for me to knit on the Mara shawl on my commute.

This weekend we are going to see our best friends to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We will have been happily married for 33 years as of Friday.

happy early anniversary! I'm hoping for some time this weekend to get a little garden work in - some clean up and trimming is needed, and maybe a seed or two planted...

Congratulations! That's wonderful!

Seeds are the way to go - I always plant about 8 packets for my cutting garden. Last year only the zinnias and cosmos bloomed, but we amended the soil this year so I'm expecting a huge crop!
