It seems late – the end of May.  I have usually made a good beginning by now.  But the last two years have been very wet and cold and I am happy to just be starting.  Happier still that I have someone to share this passion of growing things and digging in the dirt.  Today we cleared the beds, turned the soil, picked up a few starts, and found the netting that will keep small backyard friends out of our garden.  It is a start in more ways than one.
