It's still springlike here in Ohio. I kept waiting for a brutally cold winter to return, but it hasn't. My daffodils have popped through the ground and it seems like a good time to get my garden ready.
I bought a great book, Week-by-Week Vegetable Gardener's Handbook. You enter your own first average frost for your location and add and subtract weeks before and after that date. The book tells you when to plant particular seeds, start seeds indoors, when to plant outside, and when to do maintenance based on the first frost date. According to this book, it's officially Late Spring in my neighborhood for gardening purposes. I'm a little behind schedule planting my spinach seeds. I highly recommend the book for newer gardeners.
Now that I'm ready to go outside and start digging and planting, I re-injured my foot. Badly. By doing nothing except driving and doing laundry and dishes, things I have been doing lately without pain. My foot trouble began more than two years ago with a stress fracture. It kind of feels like I have another.
So I'm off my feet for the weekend and am hoping the nerve is just inflamed and nothing worse is wrong. I'm definitely going to be checked out for a few days if not longer.
My little guy is hanging out with me in bed today. We've decided to write children's stories. I have a feeling the stories are going to be about a little boy who loves trains and takes a weekend to hang out with his mama.
