In Bloom

For all of you still dealing with snow, I'm so sorry. I realized today that there are tulips and a million other things blooming in my yard. Spring has sprung! Time to clean out that bolting kale in the garden boxes behind me and get the new seeds planted for spring. This year we're doing a lot of what we loved last year: more kale, carrots, zucchini, beets, and lettuce, and less radishes. Man, radishes grow like crazy here, but I get tired of them so fast. There's only so much you can do with a radish. 

We have three garden boxes out front - each one 8'x4' and can hold about 30 plants if done right. Our kale lasted through the entire winter this year, with one little freeze that killed off a few plants, but it has been a treat to get fresh (free) kale whenever we want during the winter. (Don't look too closely in the background; our neighbors across the street are in the middle of a house-painting engagement.) 

Pants: NYDJ (gift from mom)
Tank: Le Tote
Cardigan: Nordstrom (similar)
Wedges: Nine West
Watch: Shinola

I don't know if you guys have tried NYDJ, but I really love their work pants. They come a bit higher, which makes tucking shirts in a bit impossible sometimes, but they are super comfortable. Worth a try if you haven't yet! I think I am aging myself 20 years with this opinion, but whatever.
