Spring is back! Hooray! Here are some before pictures of what the demonstration garden I help coordinate for my local extension office looks like now. Stay tuned for some fun pics on how its going to look in a few weeks after planting. We are doing another kid friendly gardening theme this year. I hope to be able to post some good pictures with descriptions of what we are doing these season and how you can apply them to your own garden at home.

I am happy to report that we have an eager group of new master gardeners to welcome into our master gardener's association. Several of them have joined me in working in the demonstration garden and it is looking great as you can see.
Some of the new master gardeners have also taken on a new project in building up a bee/butterfly garden close to where our demonstration garden is and will help us with our efforts to employ beneficial gardening practices in this year's garden. Hopefully updates and pictures of that exciting new project will follow soon. As well as new pictures of my home garden which is doing well, finally too, after a slow start from a cool spring.

Love my new tiller! So much easier to start and it works GREAT!
It may not look like much now but my home garden will be brimming with life in a few weeks. Got so many yummy things planted today. In a few months we will be able to eat, cabbage, peas, broccoli, cauliflower, beets, carrots, radishes, lettuce, spinach and onions. The best part will be that we'll get to pick it fresh right out of our own backyard.
