Gardening Begins

Well, I had a wonderful day today. My husband had it off, so we went and did a little plant shopping today. We got a few things for the garden and a couple fruit trees. We’ve been here for 3 years, so it is about time we get our orchard started. It is something we talk about every spring and don’t seem to get done. This morning we decided we would get another fruit tree every payday until it is past tree planting weather around here. We should be able to get a couple more trees in this year that way. After we planted our trees this afternoon, I got to do some real gardening. I planted some things in the garden and planted some flowers I got the other day. It always feels good to plant things in the spring and think of all the good things you will get in the summer.

I got another surprise this morning as we got home. The mail carrier was right behind us and had a box for me. I thought it was going to be delivered by someone else. Anyway, I got these books:

I am planning on using them in the planning of the sweater I am going to make for my husband. Knitting in the Old Way looks absolutely daunting with all the information it has in it. I was too busy to really look earlier, but it has so much more than I had ever imagined I would find in it. I’m going to look at both of them tonight after I get the kids to bed.

Something else really pleasant: My husband announced this morning that HE was going to cook supper tonight. And he’s making lasagna. MMMM.

I love trees and spring and planting. I can't wait to have a garden. We have also discussed an orchard - we have about five acres that aren't planted with anything else, I though some fruit trees would be perfect.
That 'Knitting Ganseys' looks like a really appealing book, let me know what you think of it...
