life outdoors

We've been doing a lot of this lately....it's lambing time, hooray.  Nothing beats cuddling a warm, woolly lamb to tell you that it's spring.

Time to start allotmenting and lining up seed packets, planning all the yummy veg that we will be transporting home by the wheelbarrow full later in the year (always good to be optimistic in the spring, don't you think).

Every time I have passed a packet of squash seeds through the winter I've found myself at the till, 'investing' in another variety, because we really love to eat them and now I find I have enough seeds to start a squash plantation - never mind the other veg. that I'm going to have to squeeze in around them.

It's also hard to see much printing happening over the next few weeks as the call of the soil has started, although I have signed up for our local arts trail and various other projects over the coming year and probably can't put the same pictures up as last year, can I?

I have already started in the garden. It is the best time of the year. You can feel stuff wanting to grow.

You're right Keith - no way to fight it!

What a lovely lamb! I hope you will find enough time for priting and working in the garden - will you have enough land for all that squash? I have bought so many seeds, that I'm afraid I won't have where to squeeze them in.
