Come on - sing along!
Plants on the ground, plants on the ground,
Lookin' like a fool with your plants on the ground.
Bags full of soil, pots dumped sideways,
Lookin like a fool with yer plants on the ground.
(you sang along, right?)
I'm planning that spring rush. You know, when you twiddle your fingers all winter long just waiting for spring to get here and suddenly it's as if a starter gun has gone off but you're already a mile behind first place before you've even left the starting line.
So much to get done in such a short span of time! It happens every single spring.
And, like every other year, I'm determined to win this race with a plan.
It never pans out, but hey, at least I got a plan.
First on the list - get all those perennial plants I bought for a couple of pennies at the clearance sales last fall INTO the ground. I'm determined this year not to just let them sit there, in their pots, on the ground, giving sidelong glances and muttering, "Yeah, I'll get to you. Eventually."
They are being planted first!
Ok, after I get the beds prepped and get done dealing with the Winter Sown stuff. Oh, and get the cole crops into the veg garden and deal with dead wood and weed and . . .
The best laid plans of mice and men.
Yeah, some thing just never change.
Happy (plants on the ground) growing!
