Planting Season Reminds me of Forest Hill, Louisiana

It's that time of year, spring and all, and I've been planting a fair amount of flowers and vegatables in the garden beds. I'm reminded of a fabulous trip I took to Forest Hill, La. a couple years ago. Please read about it here. Forest Hill is THE place to go for plants of all kinds.

A good friend gave me this sign for my birthday earlier this year. I do love paisley (sounds like an herb, huh), but I hope to grow more than that this year. See the spinach on the right side? I'm off to a good start. What are you growing in your garden?

My dad planted spinach one year. He harvested the whole row and after he cooked it we each had one bite. That's all there was! Better to keep it raw and put it in a salad, I guess.

We'll eventually be planting tomatoes in our planter on the deck - the only way to keep the critters from eating them before we get to harvest them. But that won't be for another month. It's too cold!
