It is Spring!

I planted onion seeds on our anniversary in late February.  I'm so romantic. 

Never knew that onions unfolded and the seed ends up in the air...

They are now about 3 inches tall.  My plan is to grow them and transplant into the new raised beds I am creating this year.  They probably will get leggy, but I'll plant some seeds also to get a staggered harvest and see how they grow.   
I also built a little green house out of "culled" (love that term) scraps from the Home Despot, leftover plastic window insulation and some plumbing pieces. 

It's a bit wonky, but don't hate on creativity!

Chamomile has also chosen to make an appearance.  I'm going to plant as much as I can in my garden, as last year I didn't and only was able to harvest about 1/2 c. of the flowers.  You can't make much tea or hair rinse out of that!
Tiny little buggers. 
 
My dear hubby has also gotten on the band-wagon and collected some random 2x4s from work that I will be making into some raised garden beds in our yard.  This next weekend will be splendid, so hopefully we can get them cut and put together.  I'll post about that later.
