I love spring. I've decided I like temple square in the spring with the tulips and blossoms even more (way more, really) than at Christmas with the lights. I think it's so much more appealing. Perfect temperature, smells fantastic, less crowded, let your kid run free on the grass, stop by Rocky Mt Chocolate Factory for a chocolate caramel covered apple, eat it outside near the fountains at City Creek, go buy more chocolate 'cause it was so good you want more and end up spending too much- but it's ok every now and again, eat it outside near the fountains at City Creek, again, wipe off your sticky child, go home and your child goes to bed easily that night 'cause he's tired... ahhhh.

This year I was ambitious with the small space we have in back. I more than doubled the amount of pots we grew last year. From 4 to 9 to be exact. Hopefully everything grows cause if you were to look at Tito's patch of grass we laid for him last year you'd think it would all be dead in a week. This year we have a patio tomato, cherry tomato, basil, oregano, parsley, thyme, rosemary, a small sweet pepper, spinach, lettuce, 2 strawberry, peas, and green beans. The peas, beans, lettuce and spinach are all from seed and I've never done that before. I'm also waiting just a titch longer to plant some cucumber seeds but honestly I don't know where it will go. Sheesh, last year was only a tomato plant and herbs. I want to have some good early spring, late summer pictures so I really hope everything does well. I especially want some produce, lots and lots and lots.
