Gardens.....

They have pros and cons.  Pro's being the free(ish) vegetables, the exercise you get from tilling, planting, and weeding, and the time outside instead of sitting at a computer or reading where you get needed sunshine.  Plus my brother's on a deal about how going barefoot or at least weeding with your bare hands 'grounds' you and helps your joints and stuff.
The cons being after all winter of limited exercise-partly my fault, we do have a workout room that I should have used-and being indoors means that trying to rush and get the ground ready for planting leaves the muscles rather stiff and sore.  Not to mention having to soak my hands to get the majority of the dirt off.  Washed them twice and still they have dirt.  And the constant fight with the weeds is a pain too...
But I think it makes a good St. Patrick's Day activity, finally getting something planted after trying all week.  And I remembered to wear green, if my shoes count-they are a rather bright green.  So we've got two rows of peas(sugar snap and snow) and a row of sweet onions.  Granted, the onions were only because some of the ones I planted last year regrew this year in the same spots so I figured I might as well get the whole row growing if they were doing that well.
Now if I can get to my truck before work tomorrow...
