  1. We are so ready for gardening here at the old Back Porch. The snow is still melting here. It was a lot and it stayed on the ground two weeks. We are hoping this will help the drought and J’s hosta gardens and other plants around our home will thrive this season.

    Those nasturtiums look amazing. If they are grown without pesticides they make wonderful garnish for dishes. Perhaps we should put some out on the berm by the creek.

  2. Tammy from Deja Vue Designs grows nasturtiums every year and uses them as garnish and in her salads. I’m inspired to plant nasturtiums in my garden this year, too.

  3. I need to start planting our garden before it’s too late 🙂

  4. Hi Sharon… I am so excited for Spring! The winter where we are has been long and cold… great for cozy nights in front of the fire but I am more than ready to get outside and start thinking about gardening again! Looking forward to checking out your G+ class!

  5. AW, thatnks for sharing such great tips. I am so missing a yard at this time of year. I like my condo, but really miss working in the soil. Thanks for making me feel like I COULD work in it.

  6. I know you are! Your landscape is so pretty! I can’t wait to see it in full bloom this year.

  7. You could little container gardening if you have a patio!
