Hopefully spring will be here soon, and we can start getting the garden ready. We're going to start sprouting potatoes today in egg cartons and then we'll plant them after the last frost. Our garden didn't do so well last year, only lettuce, rocket and loads of green tomatoes that never ripened. The boys loved it though, the digging, the weeding, all the worms. Slug hunting in the evening. A friend had a good book on that, 50 ways to kill a slug, but the boys just collected them in buckets and dumped them on the lawn in front of the train station.
