I started this blog to get to know other gardeners and track my own garden's progrss. It is a wonderful way to honor the stewardship I have over my plot of ground I have been blessed with. Thanks for stopping by!

WOO HOO - My 100th Post in my Gardening Blog!

Linking up with  Fertilizer Friday  - links also in my side bar - you must check out all the other great gardeners!

Supposed to get to 10* BELOW ZERO again this weekend so I am surfing the net looking for some fun gardening ideas and found these ideas.

These are really great links to show some space saver ideas and how to's for gardening.  ( Thanks Marion for the links!)

This is the next one - very cool!

There are some really great videos at http://easiestgarden.com/ for space saving ideas.

Also a cute video with a Uganda girl planting a sack garden - a great idea for limited resources and space. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMv72yQFbvI&feature=related

I've Got Spring Fever!

Linking up with Fertilizer Friday and Cottage Flora Thursdays - link also in my side bar - you must check out all these great gardeners!

Spring Fever ---->That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so! ~Mark Twain

My first post for 2011.....
I woke up this morning, the sun  shining bright and beautiful and streaming in my window.  I laid in bed thinking just 2 feet through the wall it is  - 25* below zero wind chill (-15* below temp.) and I am warm and comfy.  I laid there thinking about the things I want to do in my yard this year. 

It is the sun's fault and I have spring fever!

I found a great video of a family in California who have turned their entire yard into a garden.  Another from Wisconsin that has a total ecosystem in their greenhouses on 3 acres - both very cool videos.

So instead of showing you my snowy yard or looking through pix to share that will make me even more spring feverish - I am going to share these video links with you.

Thanks for stopping by!
