  1. I have one to add too......sit in my garden and visualize where I'm going to plant the beans and the peas and the lettuce and the tomatoes.....and dream.......

    1. This time of year is wonderful for dreaming.

  2. Thanks, Susan, for all the great info.

    1. You are welcome. I learn a lot while doing the research.

  3. Thanks. These are good sites to look at while trying to avoid doing too much,too early in the season, outside!

    1. I liked the Eartheasy site as it included checking and repairing ditches and fences-a good reminder to have that kind of thing on a schedule.
