Warmer Weather

What beautiful weather we have been having!! We spent the weekend at the lake with Barts family and that was a blast. The kids loved playing in the water and with the cousins. To my surprise they all slept in the kid tents. To my dismay I am older and the sleeping bag on the ground did not really work for me. WE will be camping a lot this warm season, with an air mattress of course!
Today was in the mid 80's and its fabulous. To think about a month ago it was 4 degrees and we had snow. You gotta love Oklahoma, if you don't like the weather wait 15 minutes lol.
   I started some more seeds today and bought some plants from the nursery. Well first i purchased a strawberry plant from Walmart, then decided to go to Montgomery's and the had a great selection of healthy plants. Not only were they in better condition , they were cheaper!I bought a beautiful lavender bush for $8.99 Stevia for $3.99 and a lovely strawberry plant with little green berries already on it for $1.59. Oh and a 5 pound bag of red seeder potato's for $2.99. I am so excited to have a kitchen garden. Hopefully i will get over to my Mother in Laws house soon to help get the big garden started. It will be great to work with her and learn about how to garden in Oklahoma. OK so today I started three different varieties of heirloom tomatoes, heirloom chocolate brown bell peppers, heirloom black zuchinni, heirloom salad greens and, luffa gourds! A week or so ago I had planted cilantro, green basil, purple basil, thyme and bunch onions. Yesterday i noticed the cilantro is sprouting and today the purple basil.What a wonderful gift are seeds? Such tiny things that produce life giving food filled with vitamins and minerals. It is truly a miracle. My amazing and hardworking hubby is picking up the tiller today so we can get the front yard all ready to go for more of my planting madness.I think I have Spring Fever! I hope you catch it from me!! Mwahahahahaha...

  1. Oh my gosh the last time we went camping, which was about three years ago, I couldn't even sleep my hips were killing me so bad! An air mattress is the only way to go! And yay for gardening :)
