“The real things haven’t changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasures; and have courage when things go wrong.” ― Laura Ingalls Wilder

It’s been a tremendously busy week!  Farm stand orders are picking up, visitors in town, filming, along with spring preparations. Spring has sprung and it’s as if someone has shot off a gun as we lumber and, sometimes, sprint to the finish line.  Huff puff!

A big storm is supposed to slam us over the weekend!  We REALLY need the rain so it will be such a blessing.

We have TWO, that’s right, TWO Giveaway’s going on with more to come.

    We are also hoping this weekend’s storm will bring a lot of rain to our Oceanside garden and are ready to plant some summer veggies next week.

    Anais, Spring has definitely sprung here in Nebraska. The days are continually tickling the 80 degree mark. That’s very unusual for March. I have to wonder if we are going to have a scorching hot summer like last year. With the new property garden expansion going on, there’s lots of work to get done before May. The garden area is all ready to be planted but I would like to get fences built before planting time so Hi Ho Hi Ho it’s off to post hole digging I go. All the utilities have been located and reside right next to the road. That’s totally awesome.

    The weather guys keep promising rain and had predicted it to rain four days this week but now the forecast has practically taken all the rain out. Rats, I really want to have the rain collection system start filling up the main tank. So far we have had only .2 inch which equates to only one inch of the 24 inches needed to fill the tank. I’m sure that before May it will be overflowing.

    I hope you get your rain but nothing that’s hard on the plant life. Have a great busy garden day in the California sunshine.

    Ah, springtime – sort of 🙂 Where we are in the northwest in the last 2 weeks we have had snow showers, rain showers, wind, hail and sunshine. We still get quite a way below freezing at night, down in the 20’s, sometimes in the teens. We are preparing the ground in our garden but I have not started any seeds yet, still a bit too early. Need to get a seed order in and am hoping to start seeds the first part of April. We always start them inside and then fill in what doesn’t come up with heirloom plants from the local garden centers. Last year was one of the worse gardening years for us, froze out 3 times – twice in May and once in June, even lost some fruit trees and the remainder of our grapes. Even the lettuce didn’t do well which was very unusual. Prayerfully, this year will be more productive.
    Happy gardening everyone!
