The weather has been so amazing lately in Manitoba – what has everyone been doing around the yard so far? We’ve tidied it up, somehow there always seems to be garbage accumulated in the bushes and the fence, a great job for a kid with gloves. And I helped too – which made me remember how much I love my dig it gloves!
Next step is deciding what I want to plant – anyone have any good suggestions? I ordered a bunch of seeds from Heritage Harvest Seeds – something I’ve always wanted to do but never seem to remember in time. Will be a fun project to start them indoors with my soon to be 6 year old. Do you guys start in the house, plant outside from seeds, or buy plants already grown? It was fun to read through their selection and really pick stuff that fits our garden and our style – I seem to always go crazy on tomatoes…yet no one in my family really likes them. I’m attempting some weird ones this year, romanesco brocoli, miniature white cucumbers…should be fun! I planned it out so I still have room to add a few more, last year I looked all over for yellow zucchini but couldn’t find the plants anywhere – any suggestions?
Next out will be our patio furniture, fire pit and my beloved hammock! Is anyone else scared like me to take all that stuff out, I feel like I will be jinxing this warm weather – and please don’t blame me if it does snow again! 😉
