Buds a-buddin'!

Could it be? Yes, it could, and is! My flower bulbs are finally budding through the freshly thawed ground... Which means it's time to plan out my garden. I'm thinking a lettuce theme. But I'm gonna give Shenan time to finish posting her fence so that her wild dog-beast will be comfortably partitioned away...

Turns out Shenan's mangy mutt shredded the note she left nailed to the post next to my garden.

Turn them into sproutful things, plant them in my mini greenhouse, or mix them into my garden... or maybe all three!
