Thinking spring

Lab Note #1
Feb 21, 2014

I ordered seeds for my home garden yesterday, and I really shouldn't be allowed near seed catalogs without supervision! In addition to the veggies I'll be starting, I did add some annuals and perennials for the pollinators in my yard (Tithonia, and Asclepias tuberosa for now).

A few of the volunteers who participated in this project in 2013 shared photos with me of their backyard gardens, and they are quite the inspiration. I'm looking forward to another summer of adding more perennials and flowers to the previously neglected garden beds at my house.
