Today we went outside and did a job I've been dreading, and therefore putting off: cleaning out the old, dead plants from last year's garden to prepare for new plantings. We also planted some seeds for sugar snap peas, one of our family favorites. They should be really sweet this time - each one Lydia planted, she blew it a kiss as she "put it to bed" in the dirt.
A new day, a new planting season, a happy new year. I hope yours is the same!
