Spring On

Spring is an inspiring season for me. Climbing out of a snowy Winter and cold temperatures I am only limited by my imagination. Having turned two big corners ~ Daylight Saving Time and the calendar flipping past the first day of spring ~ well, my imagination is in high gear. I am working hard to keep it in check, unlike last year. I can confidently say that I will not grow more than twelve tomato plants this year, rather than the seventeen of last season. The words of wisdom, just because you can doesn't mean you should, have become my mantra whenever I open my garden planning book.

Birdhouse Gourds, the Ultimate Tiny House

I'm not complaining because it's snowing.  Every reasonable person knows the facts.  It snows in winter, it's still winter, so find something else to do while Mother Nature does what she does.  The birdhouse gourds that I grew last year have dried and are ready to become the ultimate tiny house.
This is really an easy project, all you need is a drill with a hole saw and of course, a dry gourd.
