Waiting for Tomatoes

There are only a few weeks left to prepare for Summer. Days are getting longer and warmer. I keep longing for the warmth of the sun on my shoulders and the beginnings of a farmers tan. My garlic is growing and multiplying. The rosemary is sprouting new branches. My seeds are showing no signs of life but I am not bothered. They are old and I pretty much expected this. I will try again.

I turned the compost again before I left for a weekend of family and snowboarding. The smell of fresh earth and the dark soil makes me smile. My efforts are working - I will soon be rewarded for all my heavy shoveling.

My kitchen window is full of cleaned out and cut up food containers ready to grow the best veges I can. It looks pretty trashy so I keep the blinds shut most of the time to hide the mess from my view. I keep reminding myself these will be the beginnings of my plants so I'm not tempted to throw it all out after meticulously saving and cleaning them.

And what thought plagues my mind most of the time? God I can't wait for Tomatoes!
