There’s something about planting season—it brings hope, excitement, joy, peace…. Do you have any more thoughts and emotions to add? The last couple weeks have been busy with planting season on the farm—and every part of nature has woken up from winter and is full of life once again. Things are turning a beautiful green all around us!
We finished planting the garden this weekend. We usually keep an eye on the weather, and judge when to finish planting around the long weekend. This year it looks like the weather will be rainy for the long weekend, so it was good to get the seeds in the ground before the rain. Also, we plant seeds at the end of April that are ok in cooler temperatures. At the end of April we planted potatoes (4 different kinds), peas, lettuce, parsley, and dill. Today we planted zucchini, cucumbers, green onions, green beans, spinach, swiss chard, carrots, red onions, and yellow onions. Tomatoes have been started in the greenhouse and will be transplanted in the garden in a couple weeks.
☀️🌻Also, I was inspired to plant sunflowers this year. I always plant wildflowers and sunflowers in the yard, but I wanted more this year. 😁 So I dug up about 50 feet beside a fence outside the yard, close to the hay field, with the view of the mountains in the distant background. We planted a LOT of sunflowers. I hope they do well in this area and we will enjoy sunsets and sunflowers later this summer. 🌻☀️
Being outside is good for the body, mind, and spirit. And there is nothing more grounding than actually digging in the dirt. I encourage you to get outside, take your shoes off, and put your feet on the ground—and if possible, plant something. 🌱 It truly feels good.
I wish you love and happiness, ❤️ and until next time, enjoy springtime and being outside.
