busy, busy, busy

My wife and I are expecting a baby in May. We’ve been telling our 2½ year old daughter that the baby will be here in spring. So when I got her out of bed on March 20 and told her it was the first day of spring, she said, “Where’s my baby?”

With a baby on the way, you can imagine that we’re pretty busy getting things ready. Somehow I’ve managed to find a little time for gardening too. My little helper and I go out to the garden as much as we can. We haven’t planted anything yet, but the bamboo pea trellis is almost complete.

I’m trying to pre-sprout them now. I soaked them in water over night and this morning wrapped them in a damp paper towel, tucked them into a plastic bag, and suspended them over the baseboard heater to keep them warm. Hopefully by Saturday or Sunday we’ll have some sprouts.

We’ve also started working on the bean tee-pee. The idea is for Iris to have a cool fort to play in. What you see here is just the prototype.
