Spring Gardening Bug

I've got the gardening bug and the weather yesterday just amplified it. This week I started some seeds and bulbs inside the house. I tried this last year and it didn't work out as well as I had envisioned but I think I have a better idea of what I'm doing this year. Nollie adds a new challenge because I have to keep all the plants in a sunny window but out of her reach. Yesterday I went out to stir up my front bed and add some peat moss, this was slightly challenging since I'm not quite sure where all of the bulbs I planted last year are and I don't want to disturb them, maybe I should just wait a bit. While playing in my front bed thought I noticed that some of my tulips are coming up. I wasn't sure if the bulbs were good or not so this is very exciting, plus tulips are my favorite flower. I'm excited for this nice weather in the next week. I hope to get the yard cleaned up (the dogs are continually dragging garbage, animal carcasses and bones etc into the yard, not to mention the poop everywhere) and start to work on my garden. Curtis is going to try to fix up an old rototiller that was left in one of the sheds and then we can till up the garden and be ready for planting. Oh I love spring! Now I have to find some things to keep Nollie occupied and out of trouble while I work/play outside. Yesterday we went for a walk after lunch and then she slept in her stroller for a couple hours while I worked away outside. When she woke up I let her play in the grass but I have to worry about what she's picking up and eating off the lawn and she doesn't seem to stay entertained for that long on the grass. I think it's tough for her to move around with wet pants, coat, hat, outdoor shoes etc on. We'll have to figure it out because we will be spending lots of time outside this summer. The sun is shining, there is no wind and Nollie is having a nap, what am I doing on the computer. Ciao
