Today the sun is shining thru the windows of Tinker House!
This past Fall I filled several pots with tulips in shades of pink and white. I then get to bring them into the house for a bit of instant sunshine.
Forcing tulips is something I treat myself to each year! It's not hard and so worth it!
This will be my first gardening season to have Tinker!
To have a place to keep my tender plants, pot new arrivals and such ...
Is truly a blessing to me.
Now that Spring is underway at the store...my mind is on the garden!
The potager especially!
This past week I purchased some seeds and started working on this years layout.
We always have beds just for salsa making, one or two over by Tinker just for herbs and tons of tomatoes, okra and cucumbers.
Things that I am able to put up myself.
We also have strawberries, blueberries and beautiful espaliered pears and peaches!
This year I am thinking I also need a plum tree so I have looking into this as well.
Even though I guess I haven't thought about it. Our garden is organic. We never use pesticides and since we compost, our soil is full of nutrients the ground craves. I love being able to go out and eat a tomato or berry just off the vine.
We put the potager in several years ago and used raised beds and pea gravel pathways.
I spend a great deal of time out in the garden so we also have a small bistro table and chairs in the potager!
I know my time will soon be divided once more between my job at the store, my home's renovation and my garden!
This morning despite the chill, I walked around my little garden and saw signs that Spring is definitely on it's way!
And I can't wait!
I told you about one of my newest blog friends Tracie in my last post. This post I thought I would share a couple more of my new bloggy buddies!
I would like you to meet Denni at Harvest Moon.
She is the sweetest and always has some great posts she shares.
The other one is Kelly at Peaceful Living.

Have an amazing Sunday Afternoon!
