Be fruitful....

We bought 20 strawberry plants, 2 blueberry bushes and 2 blackberry bushes and planted them outside the back porch today - along with a zillion pansies and the daffodil, tulips, crocus and hyacinths that I took from our old house.

Our house is becoming our home, although I may never get the dirt out from under my nails.

Now, if we could just get a jump start on the "and multiply" part...

Thirty-six months ago, I started using Fertility Friend to track my charts. Three entire years ago. To think, I never got the "premier" membership, because I never thought I'd be sticking around long enough to use it.

What folly.

There is something very soothing about gardening and new plants. I am glad to hear you are settling into your new house.

It's such a glorious feeling to get settled in a new place and realise that you are starting to view it as "home".

In regard to chart tracking, I remember a day a few years ago when I thought I would take the whole IF thing by the balls and buy an elaborate charting book, thermometer and guidance notes. Bringing it home, I felt as if I was finally taking charge of things. One month later, everything was in the bin and I realised I was in it for the long haul. Yep, that was a depressing moment.

Pansies are such friendly little flowers - this will be a happy home.
I'm glad it's beginning to feel like home to you!

The planting sounds wonderful.

I get angry every time I renew my damn "premier" membership over there. And yet, somehow, I always think...this will be the last time.

The plants sound great. Getting outside to plant sounds great. I want to go digging too!

My favorite part of springtime is being able to get out and work in my garden again. So glad that your house is becoming a home!

So very jealous that you have weather that allows you to get out and play in the dirt. I still have at least one more month before I can do that. Thankfully the rain over the weekend did remove the snow pile from the front flower bed though, so I do have hope of playing in the dirt soon.
Did you get hit with those nasty storms on Saturday? Saw that on the news and thought about you.

Yeah, I hear ya.....I'm kicking myself for not buying the FF Lifetime membership back when it was still available. I never paid anything but a monthly fee because I didn't want to waste our money.......crimany......

I did buy it, but none of my friends are left at FF. So, I barely chart and rarely go into the community boards.

I also can't wait till it gets warm here. We bought a new house and I bet I have a few surprises outside that are getting ready to show their faces.
