Well, we've certainly got the "April showers" part perfected

I just hope the "May flowers" part works out as well, particularly since I've planted quite a few and don't want them to go to waste. I've also planted peas from seed and lettuce, broccoli, and sweet pepper shoots. Once things are a little less soggy I hope to get some pictures to prove I planted them. For my birthday I placed my first ever seed catalog order for some berry bushes, flowers, and groundcover plants so there should be quite a few changes in the landscape. My goal is to move away from the formal beds that were in place and make them into a mix of edible plants and wildflowers that will be easier to care for, and replace the kitchen herb garden I had in Colorado.
