Pleeease come SPRING!

OK, we're all tired of winter.  Anyone who isn't has anti-freeze running through their veins.  Over the course of the last week or so, the daffodils have really shown up and the bees are flying.  So just come on now, and show up, Spring!

Just in time for spring is a book called 'Grow the Good Life:  Why a Vegetable Garden Will Make You Happy, Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise' by Michele Owens.  This book is the book I would have written IF 1) I was a decent writer and 2) I had a few more years on me.  I so absolutely agree with everything Michele writes about.  She's got an entire chapter devoted to why kids NEED to get out in the garden with you (or even by themselves).  It so hits home. 

If you are a non-vegetable gardener or still a newbie, please consider reading this book.  It's inexpensive (on Amazon, linked above) but you can also get it on your Kindle for less. It would be great for a Kindle since the book has zero pictures (yes, a book about vegetable gardening with no pictures).

I simply love it and hope you do too! It'll get you in the mood for spring, for sure!
