Can you believe March is here already? I’m getting spring fever! This week it was beautiful, 60 degrees and sunny. That’s pretty amazing, the first week of March is when we usually have our worst storms but we’re not out of the woods yet, the weather forecast calls for snow on Friday. No matter, the weather was glorious so I went outside and pictured what I want the yard to look like in the spring.
Our backyard is like an addition onto the house. we use the outdoor kitchen and dining area in the spring, summer and fall. After Thanksgiving we have to close it down for the winter. Now is the time to plan how it will look, do you need a new table set or a grill? Start to plan, dream and visualize. What do you want your outdoor space to look like this year?
I’m already paging through the seed catalog and tomorrow I’ll place my order. It’s hard to imagine doing this in so soon but the seeds need to be started in March to be ready to plant in the beginning of May. I’m anxious to get the yard into shape. In May it will look something like this:
Next month the ground will begin to warm the Asparagus will peek through the soil and yard will come alive. I’m looking forward to that, right now it’s looking a bit stark:
I think about all of the good things we plant in the spring. The seeds need to be started soon or I will miss my window. In the summer my garden is filled with the Heirloom vegetables, things like Swiss Chard, Summer Squashes and Sun Gold Tomatoes. That means I have to think ahead and plan what I will plant and where. May will be here before we know it so now is the time to start!
I am so with you that I’m ready for spring to be here. Monica, you’ve created such a lovely Italian-esque outdoor area. It’s just so charming.
we have been getting our yard ready for spring. I am hoping to get some vegetables in this year. Maybe a small plot for now.
I haven’t even thought of my garden yet, but I should. I need to order seeds and start seeding them indoors….I especially love growing herbs. They make my yard smell so fragrant!
Love your yard, it’s gorgeous. I can’t wait to have a garden, the planning sounds like fun.
Love your yard, it’s gorgeous. I can’t wait to have a garden, the planning sounds like fun and there’s nothing better than eating the fruits of your labor.
There is so much to get the yard ready for summer. I love all of it though! I don’t even mind pulling weeds. I love to comb through seed magazines and dream when it is super cold outside. I can’t wait to see more of your garden.
We don’t have a yard just yet (construction zone behind us for at least another year). You are giving me lot’s to day dream about! We love eating outside in spring and summer!
Your backyard is amazing. MY son was peaking over my shoulders and very jealous!
Your garden looks lovely! We just got another blast of snow so I will have to wait a bit before getting ours ready. I am also hoping to have some asparagus this year.
Wow!! My husband and I have making our backyard nice on our bucket list! Right now it’s mostly space for our kid’s playground and toys. haha. It’ll be nice to someday make it into something awesome like yours!
It is that time! I have my house getting painted and a new patio being poured off our dinning room (where we replaced a window with a patio door) the first week of April. So much (needed) rain here this week, that gardening is not yet possible. It is fun looking forward!
