Garden

Is this thing on?

Today is another supreme Colorado day, with all the potential of spring in the air, and I’m inside on the couch. What gives?
I thought that instead of just thinking and talking about the idea of my own blog, I’d just do it. So here we are.
I promised myself that if I got at least the setup and one post done, I’d break out the slackline and get it setup in the backyard. That’s usually motivation enough for me.
Our garden is starting to come together – we’ve got salad greens, kale, arugula, and peas up, and onions and garlic in, and more seeds started. Our compost bin is built and filling up, there are tulips and daffodils blooming… wow…
Today the old Birney trolley (streetcar) is running, and it’s one of our fun things to do that’s cheap and easy, so we’ll go after naptime. Man, I want a nap, too.
