The sun has begun to peak its head out from the clouds upon a rainy Vancouver. Crickets can now be heard from our bedroom window at nighttime. Little daffodils have already popped up on the dirt mounds, which Ania has officially titled, "The First Signs of Spring".
Yes, it is Spring time again...Or, around our house, "Gardening Season".
What does that look like???
Suddenly the laundry room has been transformed, from a place for clean laundry into a green house of growth...tomatoes are popping up from little black planting jars and a thick warmth from the heat lamps provides a green house affect.
...the clothes have found a new home on the bonus room couch.
It took a little bit for mom to adjust to this idea at first.
...Just when she was beginning to adapt, her kitchen table was taken over with sprouting peppers and a plastic structure that held more heat lamps. A constant fan was going to strengthen the roots...and freeze out the residents :)
Teachers had to improvise...and the kitchen counters became the new classrooms area.
Since then, Dad has sworn to provide a green house for next years planting...I believe this was after a bucket of mud was lugged into his "museum" to fill the plastic containers :)
Jonathon has been pouring time and energy into this farm to make this a fruitful year. The garden is looking great, and weed free (for right now :)
We are hoping for a successful year this Summer...as has not been the case in previous years :)
