I clearly have gardening on the brain right now. We’re being far too spoiled in Maine. It’s been warm and sunny. Like, really warm for April. Shorts, sandals and short sleeves weather. Yet, there’s still a chance for frost in the next few weeks. Ugh.
Such is life in Maine. I finally brought myself to move the snow shovel from the back porch and into the detached garage. I’m pretty sure we won’t be getting any more snow. Pretty sure.
Today, we’re enjoying unseasonably high temperatures, as the Boston marathoners are roasting. Hydrate people!
My peg in the mud room is getting overloaded with all the different coat options on it. (I try to make sure everyone has one peg for the jackets they currently need for the season.) Right now, there are two lightweight jackets, a sweatshirt, a fleece, a down jacket, and a lighter wool jacket on mine.
Every time I put one jacket away in the closet, I end up having to pull it back out because the weather changes. And a good option in the morning is usually a bad one in the afternoon. I usually end up sending the kids to school or daycare either overdressed or under dressed. I can’t win.
But at least I know that summer is around the corner. And you just can’t beat living in Maine during the summer. My kids are excited about gardening just as much as I am. They are dying to water the flowers, even though there’s nothing to water yet.
So I’ve resorted to garden planning for now. We have some big projects in mind for our small yard this year, one being a raised veggie garden. When asked what kind of veggies we should plant in our first family veggie garden, Biz (the 3 year old) didn’t miss a beat.
“Cucumbers, tomatoes and French fries.”
Sounds good to me.
How’s spring where you are?
