Spring is officially only five days away! Professional Baseball's Spring Training is already in full swing, and it's opening day is only 16 days away!
I am a bigger football fan than baseball fan, but what says spring and summer better than Baseball, Hot Dogs, Apple Pie and Gardening?!
During the NFL playoffs, I compared my gardening to the NFL, so I thought I should switch sports now to officially welcome Spring.
Introducing The GardenDesk Growers Baseball team!
I took a break from blogging this week to celebrate my daughters' birthdays and to plan my garden on paper. So now I have plans for a new field, a list of teams and rosters for the Gardendesk Growers.
I organized what is going into the vegetable garden under these categories (teams): Tomatoes, Cool Season, Main Season, Fruit, Decorations, and Annual Flowers.
The rosters of each team can get quite lengthy and some need a bit of explanation. For today's post, I will simply list them all. Tomorrow and in subsequent posts, I will explain each "team" in more detail. Are you ready? Its a long lineup. Here goes:
Introducing the GardenDesk Tomatoes:
Introducing the GardenDesk Cool Season Players:
And now for your Main Season GardenDeskers:
Give it up for the new GardenDesk Fruit Varieties:
These newcomers will join our existing Apple, Peach and Pear trees.
Next up, the GardenDesk Decoration Dudes:
And last but not least, introducing our Annual Flowers:
These will be managed mainly by my daughters, so this roster is subject to change without notice.
And there you have it ... The comprehensive list of players for GardenDesk 2007! Their playing fields have been drawn up on paper and construction will soon begin. Several players have begun warming up inside under grow lights. Many more will soon join them. Stay tuned for more updates on the pending season and players! Will all players actually get in the game? Will they all hit a homerun, or will some strike out? Many questions will soon be answered.
What does your "player list" consist of? What vegetables will you be growing that I have left off my list? Are you as anxious to get started as I am?
Dum dum da dum da dum .... CHARGE!
