It's Planting Time!

TGIF!!!  This has been one long week.  It is so hard to be inside at the office when I want to be home in the garden.  This is my favorite time of year and one of the reasons is that it's planting time!  We have expanded our garden this year and so far I have planted my onions, radishes and last week I planted three 70' rows of potatoes!  I have never planted potatoes in my own garden before because of space reasons but I loved going to my Grandfathers to dig his!  It was like finding treasure with each scoop of the spade.

This weekend, if it doesn't pour raining like the weatherman is calling for, I will be planting my broccoli, cabbage, lettuce and purple carrots.  YES!  Purple Carrots!  I ordered the seeds from Bakers Creek.
Aren't they beautiful?  I sure hope mine will grow and look like these.
I also will be spending some time transplanting my peppers.

They really need it!
I am growing Sweet green, banana, jalapeno and cayenne.

The other thing I will be doing this weekend is starting the redecoration of our bedroom.  For the last 5 years it has been decorated in a navy, burgundy and green primitive theme, which I like, it's just time to change it up some.  And this pillow that I won from The Cranky Queen is my inspiration piece!  I am going to do a purple, yellow, springy type theme!  Isn't this pillow just gorgeous.  She takes vintage linens and re purposes them into beautiful pillows.

Just Beautiful!  My walls are already white above the chair rail and green below so no painting will be involved. Thank Goodness!  I hate to paint!  I am hoping to find a soft green chenille bedspread.  I have an off white one that I bought at Macy's a few years ago but I would rather have a color, I think.

Hoping everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Spring is my favorite season too. I hope you can get out in your garden and have some fun! I was in mine yesterday,pulling up corn stalks, but we had a very heavy frost this morning so I won't be planting for quite some time. I do have some things started in my mini greenhouse though.
I hope to get the lawn mowed today.
