Our life living off the land in our log cabin, breathing fresh mountain air, and getting back to basics.

We've been enjoying every bit of this winter...even the not so pleasant things like having to park at the top of the drive because as the snow melts and refreezes every slope turns into ice...but this is the time of year to start preparing for spring.  Seems that the Daffodils are ready...

We've been planning our spring garden, and went to Sow True Seed to select some fresh seed packets.  I learned about them through Blind Pig and the Acorn and participated in their bean project last year...Tipper is doing a squash project with them this year, I'm looking forward to participating in that.  We thoroughly enjoyed meeting the friendly folks at Sow True Seed.
Elizabeth helped us select the seeds we felt would be best suited for our location and soil.  We ended up with quite the variety...between the new seeds we purchased and the seeds we saved ourselves, we'll likely be looking for more planting area!

It's exciting to think about our spring garden, and though I'm sure we still have sub freezing temps and more snow in store for us, it's refreshing to think ahead.  I'm especially in the mood today because all the snow has melted...it's warm enough that we don't need a fire in the wood stove...I've been sitting on my swing and enjoying the sun shining on my bare arms! 

Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,

Awe, this gives me hope for an early spring. I haven't even checked my Daffodils yet. I bet they're sprouting too. Good sign for sure.

I could do with a little more winter, but I sure will enjoy spring when it arrives Susie!

So true dad, hugs back!
