Puppies, although amazing, happy and smart, are exhausting! Wow! However we are lucky that our pup – named Jackson – is fantastic. He is very happy, and calm. He sleeps all through the night and is now completely housebroken – all within one month of coming home. I love my weekends and spending time with him and K. We are so lucky that K works from home most of the time, so Jackson gets lots of daytime love and attention, as well as evenings and weekends with us both. I’m looking forward to warmer days, but in the meantime Jackson loves the snow!
But when I get a minute to myself when the pup is having a nap, all I can think about is the garden. I want the snow to go away right now so I can dig up our new back yard and grow stuff! I think I’ve got it narrowed down to:
- pole beans
And all kinds of puppy-safe flowers – more to come on that! Lots of research to do there. I want to try square foot raised beds for the veggies. One, maybe two. I’m inspired by this “Plant a compact vegetable garden“
Can’t wait – It’ll be really spring before we know it! Including the 1 hour time change this Sunday…. Ugh.
