It feels like spring in West Seattle. The sun is shining, daffodils are blooming, and the onion seeds I started on my window ledge last week have begun to sprout. YAY!
I bought bare root strawberry plants at the West Seattle Nursery on Saturday… had to tear myself away from the pea plant starts because I know it is just a little bit too early. But, in a few more weeks it will be time to plant radishes, greens, and peas.
I’ve got big plans for my little garden this year… I’m not sure the 4′ x 8′ bed I built last year is going to be large enough!
How about you? Have you been bitten by the gardening bug? Whether you are a seasoned gardener or just a beginner, we think you’ll LOVE our March Giveaway.

OKAY, now it’s time to enter our MARCH GIVEAWAY!
Respond to this post and name a fruit or vegetable you used to hate, but now enjoy. And, we’d love it if you would tell us what changed your mind about it!
Just for the record: I hated mushrooms until I spent the night at a friend’s house in 4th grade and her mom ordered a pizza with mushrooms. I didn’t want to be rude, so I ate the pizza and realized mushrooms weren’t so bad after all. Now, of course, I love them.
We’ll announce the winner of our March Giveaway on March 29th and send you your prizes in the mail. Good luck and happy Spring!
