Pretty as Dirt

I know it may just look like a patch of dirt (or is it soil once there are seeds in it?) but I think it's pretty beautiful. To me it looks so rich and inviting and full of potential. If I was a seed I'd want to snuggle right in and get down to business. It was mild and just a little overcast this afternoon, so I threw caution to the wind and planted lettuce and peas. Tomorrow if it's not raining I'll do some spinach. I love dirt. Once I start mucking around in it I keep trying to think of more things to do. Transplant some houseplants? Divide some hostas? Go to the garden centre and buy some bags of dirt? I try to show some discipline and just pick out stones...


  1. I am so jealous of your free dirt and patch of earth!!!! I have been going crazy just thinking about going outside in the spring air to work in the garden. Apartment living, I do my best with bags of potting soil and terra-cotta pots.

    I planted my peas as well...and my nasturtiums are popping up. Its kinda cute, I like a fun challenge!

  2. Looks good! Got my peas and spinach and some other greens in yesterday. Now to stop the neighbourhood cats from digging it all up...
