February continues what January started – only colder. Everything is white and varying shades of grey. And I continue to dream of spring.

When I bought the arbour, I also bought four little garden beds.

They are nothing fancy – just little 3′ x 3′ flat pack cedar beds. But the price was so good ($79 each) – I couldn’t buy enough wood to make them for that!

When they arrived, Dave decided they’d last longer if they were painted. So for a couple of days, he took over my kitchen island and half the counter, and painted each piece of wood in our signature green.

Despite having to cook around the mess, I can’t complain – they will now match the two tall boxes I got last year.

These beds and the tall boxes will be for veggies. I stocked up on seeds last month.

Nothing fancy. Just a couple types of beans, snap peas, carrots, spinach, cucumbers, and broccoli. I also have some asparagus coming with one of my flower orders – though I understand that takes a couple years to get established.

And I also got this oddity…

It’s a plant native to North America (Also known as Strawberry Blite). Apparently the leaves taste like somewhat like spinach. The berries are edible too – though they say they don’t taste like strawberries. Since I love spinach, I thought it would be fun to try. At the very least, I’m sure the birds will love the berries if I don’t.

I’ll be starting most of the seeds in a few weeks. The first day of spring is only 47 days away!!!

    Your house looked like mine when I had all that molding drying all over the place. My neighbor has the most beautiful raised bed vegetable garden. I envy their sunshine. They even have a grapevine and a fig tree. I’d kill for those.
