Happy Equinox!

Equinox. Even. Equal.  

Change. 

Much needed change.

Yay Spring!  The days are filled with more light. The snow recedes from the house and the trees. The sap is running. The wee one splashes in the mud puddles formed in the drive. And the sheep are snuffling their noses to the ground; searching for any bit of green.

Today the wee one and I will start some seeds. Onions, marigolds, calendula.   We will take down the paper snowflakes from the living room window. And during the wee one's nap, I will trudge out to the garden and dig out the polytunnels filled with spinach sprouts waiting to wake up.

How will you be celebrating the new season?

A bit cooler today but I still took my pepper and tomato plants outside to enjoy a bit of sunshine.. also been digging in the dirt in my containers and trying to decide what I want to plant in them. I have some cotton seeds but found out the ground has to be a steady 65 degrees before I can plant them... I thought planting some cotton would be educational for the grand boys.
