I keep hoping that spring is just around the corner but I don't seem to be finding the right corner to look around. I know it's coming but it is certainly taking it own sweet time this year. Will I look back on this in August and be wishing for just a little cooler weather? Ah, living in Iowa.......
The shop opens this Saturday and we are ready and eager to get going, new products, new ideas, new year! Holly is especially excited about the personal care items we have. Come in and try the Loess Lavender Hills products, great mild fragrance and feel.
We ordered our own seeds along with the ones for sale at the shop and spent a good portion of Sunday trying to figure out where they will all go. We started some remodeling on the front beds last fall and are adding raised ones in back when the weather allows. As with all of you, we are trying to make the best use of the space and sunshine we have available.
Good luck with your own garden plans and we'll see you soon for your rain barrels and other harvesting needs.
