Spring, Spring, Spring

August 31, 2015

“Spring, Spring, Spring!” sang the frog. “Spring!” said the groundhog. 

“Spring, Spring, Spring!” sang the robin. It was Spring. The leaves burst out. The flowers burst out. And robins burst out of their eggs. It was Spring.

– Home for a Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown.

Home for a bunny was one of my favourite childhood stories, and it seems so fitting for this time of year. I’m filled with excitement.

Spring is here and I’ve felt it approaching for a few weeks now. Last week I pulled out my trusty gardening calendar from Sustainability Trust and stuck it up on the wall. A simple task I’ve been meaning to do for sometime. Now it’s there I can quickly refer to it, and notice that its time to be planting nearly everything.

I’m attempting child size portions of gardening this year. With both kids old enough now to have a great time out in the garden, and almost verging on helpful we have a lot of hours of fun ahead.

Last week I got my first lot of spuds in the ground, I’m giving the rocket variety a go this time. And over the weekend we tackled the well over grown front garden and rescued what was left of our poor neglected strawberry plants.

What are you planting this year? How do you tackle your gardening adventures with or without kids? Got any helpful structures around the place?
