With the weather finally warming up, I've started planting my veggie seeds. I absolutely love digging around in the soil, it takes me to a simple place where I'm 'one' with Mother Nature. I don't care if I have soil under my fingernails, I really don't. I rarely use gardening gloves for a couple of reasons. One is that I really like to feel the soil. Another is that I'm paranoid about spiders getting into the gloves when I'm not using them. I don't like spiders. I appreciate them, but I don't like them. I love most other bugs, including cockroaches and the very odd looking Jerusalem cricket, but spiders...no thanks. I think it must harken back to a childhood thing. Anyway, after turning the soil over the past several months, it was finally time to plant my seeds. I put in some watermelon seeds, radishes, carrots, broccoli, spinach and onions so far. The watermelons are coming up, although some nasty little unseen creature has nipped off the leaves of 4 plants already. My onions are doing great (I cheated and bought a six-pack of seedings), but nothing else has emerged (well, the radishes have, but you can't stop radishes from growing). It's a wonderful feeling to go outside and look at my garden. Such a simple thing to do, but it lifts my spirits and makes me feel good. Anything that can do that without having to be plugged in or turned on is well worth it!
