My first post in my new garden blog

Seeds have been purchased, although, they haven’t been planted yet.  I have about 40 varieties of aquatic, ornamental and tropical annuals to get going.  I have a lot more seeds than I have room to get them started.  I’ll probably sow most of them in the ground as soon as it gets warm enough.

The pond has done amazingly well with the mild winter that we’ve had.  The only problems have been a hyperactive nephew messing with the pump controls and ruining the pressure filter, and the same kid throwing stuff in the pond.  I can’t really blame the tripped GFCI on him…yet.  Luckily I caught it before the pond had been iced over for very long and got the heater going again.

All in all, it’s been an extremely mild winter.  I can’t remember a time in my life that I could go outside without a coat on in January or February.  We’ll see what the onset of spring is going to do.  It looks like Mother Nature is being ornery already, dropping tornadoes all over the country and wreaking havoc.
