Ready for Spring


I spent the day with my friends and fellow gardeners in our community garden.  We have 2 and a half plots this year which we have prepared for planting over the last few weeks.  Chicago has had a few perfect Spring days in the last 2 weeks, though every Chicagoan knows it could well snow tomorrow and that we shouldn't get our hopes up just yet.

We adjourned for coffee and sorted through our seeds while mapping out where each would go. It is going to be a delicious year.

John and I returned home and started some herbs on our windowsills: lemon basil, dill, sage, watercress, and cilantro.  He just left to watch the White Sox opener and I am about to take a sleeping pill to get to bed so I am somewhat energetic when I wake up at 3 am to have my first day of training at a local bread bakery. Life is nice right now.
