Spring!!

I'm excited its spring, more or less. I have a bunch of plants starting or growing and its fabulous. Its still cold but thats hows ohio does it. This year I'm planting calendula in hopes of making my own salves and things with it, and maybe eating some just for fun. Right now half of the seeds have sprouted and are 2 inches (give or take) tall and they are ADORABLE. I'm also super excited to report that I'm getting a dwarf fig tree, and mini blueberry bush (again) because I thought it would be fun to have my own dwarf fruit farm to produce my own fruit. Where I will put them all.....I don't really know but my family and my boy will just have to put up with it. The past 3 days have been rainy and or cloudy and it doesn't look like it will change today but I am hopefully watching for a parting of the clouds to warm things up so I can take walks and look at all the budding greenery.

Brightest Blessings

Yay spring! It's right in the middle of daffodil season for us, and the geraniums and other things i planted last spring are starting to come up again. So will the figs be dwarf-sized too or just the tree itself?

Speaking of salves...I have some comfrey-and-other-stuff salve with your name on it somewhere around the house. Yes, I know I suck.
