The traditional January rainstorms have begun. I haven't heard, though, whether we're expecting this year's rainy season to be heavy or light. Yesterday, we were without electricity for most of the day. The boy's actually enjoyed it -- being in the darkened house listening to the rainfall. After it cleared up, Hubby saw a container that had been left outside being used as a birdbath, but the rest of us missed it.
This morning, with the ground soaking wet, it was the perfect time to start preparing for this year's garden (you guys know how much I love the garden). I really want to do it big this year. I marked off a big section of the yard and started turning soil. With no toddlers trying to eat dirt or pull up seedlings this time, it should be a little easier to focus.
It's time for another visit to my favorite seed source. Squash, beans, and watermelon are calling my name. Maybe I'll even try corn this year. And I'm sure there will be some volunteer tomatoes that try to take over the garden (beware the Lycopersicon esculentum var. cerasiforme, give it an inch . . .).
