The Iowa Flower Lawn and Garden Show for 2014 is history. Great three days for meeting people and vendors and talking about life and spring. Now things are back to normal, Holly's at work and I'm looking forward to being outside this afternoon to do some yard clean up and garage reorganization!
Keep checking the seeds we started, fun to see new ones each day and hoping that they all make until transplant time. We have big plans for all the garden space and would love to actually have these give us a head start on the harvest for the season. If not, there will be plenty of starts for sale out there.
Any interest in a plant exchange system? We always have things we are thinning out, moving or just changing in the landscape and hate throwing them on the compost. It could be like Craig's list.....who knows. Let us know what you think. Enjoy the week and the beginning of spring!
