Waiting. . .on better weather

Spring is such a wonderful time of year!  Birds chirping, daffodils blooming, and seeds to plant.  Spring is a busy time of year here on the farm!  I ordered my garden seeds from a catalog in January and the day the seeds arrived in the mail was a joyous day for me!  What isn't exciting is seeing my seeds ready to plant just sitting in the carboard box in which they were shipped, waiting for a non-rainy day to plant them.  The farmer in bib overalls worked my garden ground a few weeks ago with a big green tractor, but now the garden sits. . .waiting for the rain to stop and the ground to dry before the seeds can be planted. 

I, like most gardeners, become inpatient waiting for the day in which I can plant my seeds.  I may even be slightly competitive hoping that I get my garden planted before my fellow gardeners!  Now, let's get this straight.  It is April.  We're not talking about planting tomatoes yet.  We're talking peas, radishes, onion sets, lettuce, and carrots.  For those of you who are new to gardening, I'm going to show you the tricks of the trade.  You'll be eating fresh produce and sharing the bounty with your neighbors in no time!
