Dandelion


While swinging in the sunshine this afternoon, Nathan was happy to spot and pick his first dandelion of the season. In true Sid-from-Ice-Age fashion, he pretended to munch on the delectable treat. To him, this little flower means longer days, warmer backyards, and more time outside. To me, it means planting.

I am ready for springtime. Seed catalogs are ordered and garden beds are plotted. With nice weather coming, I plan to dig weeds and turn soil in the next few days. I'll make my seed purchase soon and then... it's on. So will begin the 2012 Bauer Family Garden. It'll be the best year yet, seeing as how I'll have an extra (small) pair of hands around the farm. Have you picked your first dandelion yet? Happy Monday!
