Preparing for a Bountiful Summer

I love living where all the seasons make themselves known. But the arrival of spring and summer and all they have to offer feels like a miracle. I always wonder about the amount of energy it has to take for spring to make its appearance. For all the trees to fill with the leaves needed to give us shade; for the flowers and plants to move through the newly warmed earth to claim the sun for themselves.


I’m keen to get my hands in the dirt (with garden gloves of course) and start planting this year’s seeds. I’ve been going through my seed catalogs perusing all the different types of flowers, vegetables, and herbs I can choose from. Since I have to wait until the risk of frost has passed before I can plant outside, where I live that is after Mother’s Day.


In the meantime, I’m planting the seeds that are best started indoors in small pots.


I discovered how to make these little pots out of newspaper. I love the fact that you don’t have to go out and buy pots for your seeds. These are so easy to make (instructions below) and when the seedlings are ready to go in the ground, all you have to do is pop them into the soil without worrying about transplanting them because the newspaper will simply deteriorate.


This is a great way to avoid using more plastic in your garden.
