{Winter Blues}

Winter is giving us a quick breath of spring air so we headed outside to catch it while we can.  I am one of those lucky people who gets depressed in cold, dreary weather so days like this are essential to the state of my mental health. I pull myself up out of the dark, frozen abyss just long enough to take a deep breath before being dragged back down.

Winter has me daydreaming of packing my bags and catching the first southbound train to Florida. Rusty also shares this dream, can't you see it in his face? He's soaking it up. 

A quote I keep coming back to:

There is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing." -- Sir Rannulph Fiennes


Come February, it will be time to start some of our seedlings indoors. I'm so excited to have the space for a somewhat substantial garden this year. We have settled on a plot of land beside the office.

We plan on growing a square-foot-style garden while being mindful of companion planting. 
This layout is so, so rough and will inevitably be expanded to accommodate other scrumptious things like eggplant and melons. More to come on our adventures in working the land!


  1. I think I would suffer from seasonal depression, too, if I didn't live in Arizona!

    Good luck with your garden!

  2. I completely know how you feel! We live in the Midwest and the winter can get long! Found you on MBC because you were the featured "Member to Meet!"
