Rain, Rain

Been raining for a few days and on.

I have to say that I am feeling quite blah about Spring thus far. Normally, I am eager to get out there and get my hands dirty. Cleaning up the yard from the previous season. But, when I look out at my yard now all I see is a big bunch of yuck. Mud, mud, and more mud. Not even good mud. Clay mud. Mud, that when dries, it turns into big cement mud clods.

In the beginning I was loving reading all my fellow bloggers talking about how their yards are starting to perk up and the first season veggies are starting to roll in. I was living vicariously thru them. And, dont get me wrong, I am still happy for them. I just am now wishing I had all that stuff going on. I want to be complaining about gall on my junipers, and chicken coops being held up due to the rain. I want to be seeing asparagus growing out of my yard and eating it right out of the pan(cuz I am pretty much the only one who will eat it here, too!) Or how about deciding if I want to expand the garden area? Me, I want to have to decide that.

In the interim, I will just have to keep on reading all your adventures in the gardens. Keep them coming guys. Keep them coming. Its one of the things keeping me sane right now. Well, that in addition to the fact that I get my first CSA share next week!

Chin up, just focus on the inside and the planning. Plant some annuals in a pot!

I woke up this morning (4 am mind you) to rain on my face. It was so windy that the rain was blowing in sideways from our open windows. The edge of the bed and floor were soaked so I totally feel you about the rain.
