Spring Fever

The warmer (warmish) weather, the melting snow, the fact that I can see my garden and snippets of green grass poking through the ground has me in a daydreamers paradise  I get butterflies thinking of getting outside and planting. I am itching to go to garden centres and greenhouses. We are building a raised garden this year for our tomatoes & I am so excited! I am also figuring out what works best to kill slugs as they took over last year- not so excited about the prospect of slugs.
Right now I am stealing little snippets of time in the morning to sit in the sun, with my coffee and search Pinterest for beautiful images. I have been planning and making notes for which plants to buy, I usually go and just buy up whatever but this year I am being more deliberate in my purchases. Seriously so excited!
Here are some of my favourites...

(Did you know you could grow cucumbers up? I didn't. How did I not know this?)

Those are all so beautiful! I'm excited to see how your raised beds turn out. My backyard is still full of snow, which means mud and blech for at least a couple more months. Growing cucumbers UP would be a grand plan for me!
