More Winter? Phil says…

It is official…..Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow this morning in Pennsylvania.  This was the 126th celebration of Ground Hog Day.  Sorry everyone, Phil is never wrong, so we will have six more weeks of winter!  You’ll have to put your Spring fever on the back shelf for a little while longer.  Don’t put your snow shovel away yet!

As for us, we definitely have Spring fever, as we have been doing a lot of research on gardening, more specifically, raised garden beds, as we will be adding one to our backyard this year.  We decided that we are going to plant the things that we normally get at the grocery store and save a bunch of money by growing our own red peppers, cucumbers, onions, tomatoes, and strawberries. (and of course, MORE pumpkins)  We will definitely share with you photos of our garden install in the Spring, so keep an eye out on that! 

Remember last Monday we planted some pumpkin seeds?  Well, it took them only four days to emerge from the soil and now, they are approximately seven inches high!  Holy cow!  They are growing by leaps and bounds and we measure them every day to see how much they have grown.

Check out the progress of our “kins”!
