Snoopy Dance Ready!

Or is that Snoopy hop ready???

Can hardly wait to get ground worked up, seeds started or plants planted. Excited to be getting certified to accept WIC vouchers. It's a program for pregnant women with children up to 5 years old. I will be able to help them eat healthier....that just ROCKS!! I also am going to do some other things different this year.

The lady I carpool w/ was talking to others at lunch and they presented the plan I sell plants to them rather than them buying elsewhere because they know I'll take better care of mine than folks @ Wal-Mart and they would be helping me out at the same time. Then I went "Hmm, that sounds cheaper than the local flea market or driving to the farmers market." I mentioned it to some of my friends and they were equally attracted to that notion. So, what started out as an idea I was toying with became a solidified plan!
