Granted, it's a picture taken from my terrible cell phone camera...but they are definitely daffodil and crocus stems. Oh yeah. It's happening. I'll be starting my peppers and tomatoes inside this week, along with my pansies and violets. Soon it will be time to till the garden. I'll have dirt under my nails. I'll have hives from all the things I'm allergic to but I love too much to give up.
On a note related to spring, have you read about the new predictions for 2050? If the population keeps growing, and our food habits don't change, a major shortage of food is expected! Wouldn't it be great if we all had backyard gardens? The only produce I buy in the summer is bananas and apples. I love going shopping in my backyard to decide what's for dinner. Even if you don't want to have a garden, support your local farmers. Eat locally, not globally when you can. Every bit helps, and if we start now, we can change the way our families eat dinner.
