Here we are in March already

It's March 1, so I sent my Angry Robot submission in. Hope they like it. For one thing, I love the publisher's name.

I was going to post a picture of my March 1 garden, which is tilled and fenced properly this year. But we've had nearly a week of rain culminating in ferocious all-day storms yesterday, so the garden looks more like dirt soup and it's far too wet for me to have planted the lettuce, radishes, snow peas, and spinach that I'm dying to get into the ground. Maybe next weekend.

I do have some pepper seedlings up. No cayennes yet, but I have high hopes that I'll get some of those up soon. The cayennes particularly excite me because A) they're my favorite pepper, very hot and yummy, and B) these seeds are from a volunteer plant that seeded from a cayenne I planted two summers ago. I don't know why it thrills me to have third-generation cayenne plants, but it does. Simple pleasures, I guess.

Too cold here for gardens yet, but I'm optimistic about potatoes in the ground on St. Pat's.

Best of luck with Angry Robot. I'm pulling for you (and Bell-Men).

It's the little things in life that are the most enjoyable - I hope you get many more generations out of it.

Aaron--Oh, I need to get the potatoes in the ground too! I got some of those blue ones. :)

Danielle--Thanks! I just hope I get one seed to sprout. Peppers can be difficult to grow.

Ying is starting on his garden, but I can't get into flowers this year. My heart is set on kasuobushi and the box used to slice it. Both are beyond my reach : (

Too bad they don't grow on trees. Then you could plant them.
