Spring is getting closer . . .

We have had some cold nights the past few weeks. However, we are getting to that that magic date of the last chance of frost. With that in mind, Elizabeth and I headed out to the nursery for a couple more tomato plants, some romaine lettuce, and a 6 pack of zucchini plants. This past […]
