Spring is Coming

I can feel it. Warmer days mixed with chilly nights. That fresh smell in the air, daffodils in bloom. Just a wonderful feeling of life, everything springing up. We bought 6 fruit trees this past weekend and are working on getting them in the ground. I would love to buy 6 or so more this spring. We also have our onions and will need to get potatoes soon as well. Hope to start planting this coming weekend. Jackson had a visit with a geothermal system dealer outside of Asheville on Saturday so now we need to set up with our local contractor to have one installed.

Hopefully we can get that done in the next couple of weeks. As they will be digging near our lower garden, where I plant corn, watermelon and potatoes. So I really want that finished before I start planting. I would be really upset to plant and then have it dug up. We will see how it all turns out but it will be a very busy March this year. YAY!!!

The goal for the first couple weeks of March is to set up the geothermal installation, and plant greens, lettuce, onions, peas, potatoes, radishes and spinach.
