Gardening does a body good.
Oh yes, I'm Jones'n to get picking cucumbers and 'maters. Last week the weather turned nice here and I got the lawn and beds all raked and cleaned up, tall grass cut down/burned off, and the garden shed de-moused and re-organized. The compost pile grew considerably with all the clean up debris. I even found I have some spinach that overwintered. I'll probably throw some compost at it today to give it a kick in the pants. Garlic planted last fall is poking through.
I placed some kale plants into a couple hanging baskets after the clean up. Red Russian Kale will go in too, between the dwarf blue curly kale. The kale went from indoors to out and got snowed on within 12 hours.....it seemed to love it and is doing great. I've had my hands in the dirt all winter with indoor growing. I have lot's of starts from clones to place outside...stevia, sage, rosemary; since the kale did alright going directly outdoors to the baskets(no hardening off needed), I'll probably be placing some of that indoor kale in the ground or a planter later today.
