What did you do today to celebrate earth day? Did you plant a tree? Clean up a public area? Start your garden? I am so excited to start my potted garden this year but it is still so cold here in Wisconsin! I think I may wait a few more weeks. What should I plant? Any suggestions? I’m thinking spinach, asparagus, swiss chard, and peppers. I might also try zucchini in a pot…? just one? Am I being overly optimistic? Also, I love herbs so basil, rosemary, and chives are on the list. What I am most excited about this spring, is joining a local csa (community supported agriculture) farm. I found a great little farm on Local Harvest, a web resource that makes finding local food producers and csa farms easy. I am thinking of becoming a csa member at this local farm. Also…they have sheep! bonus! (I have always wanted pet sheep – perhaps this is my year?! ha.)
And here are your Sunday links!….

Have a great week! I would love to hear your gardening ideas!
