Ready to get gardening

I am itching to get my hands in the garden.

Last night I was up until midnight laying everything out using the free garden planter on the Smart Gardener website.  I cannot say enough about how much I love this app. In my early years my gardening attempts were plagued with over planting, forgetting to mulch, or to fertilize.  Smart gardener now send me gentle email reminders of my tasks in the garden. 

I long for all of these duties to be like second nature.  I want to be a habitual gardener where the ebb and flow of the seasons tell me when to plant, when to harvest, when to save seeds, when to till up and weather down for the winter. But that probably won't happen until I'm not running kids everywhere. So until then I'll use Smart Gardener.

The Arkansas Flower and Garden show is this weekend.  Be sure to stop by and see all the lovely ladies of Arkansas Women Bloggers at booth 17.  The unofficial official "Social Media Megaphone of Arkansas" (they are handling the social media so be sure to follow them on twitter with the hashtag #afgs2014).  I'll be catching it on Sunday. This weekend coincides with our yearly celebration of Ben's birthday and we are heading to the races again.  I've been looking forward to the corn beef sandwiches all month.

But when I get back it's time to get busy.
