Let me just avoid any seed planting, bean sprouting or fruit ripening cleverness and cut to the chase.

The Crazy Billionaire household got a new gardener on February 3. She's been a pretty good baby so far, generally scheduling her fussy awake times to mostly daylight hours. And she's left me more time than I expected for seed-starting, bed-digging and watering, if not garden blogging.

Her arrival has accompanied another tempting early Austin spring that has everything in the garden perilously sticking out stems, leaves and blossoms, and me, as usual, itching to plant with no idea where to put everything.

But those are minor problems. It's been, metaphorically, a long cold snowy winter, but here comes the sun and it's alright.

Congrats on your new addition Ke. She looks like a pea in a pod in that photograph. Our kids schedules have been thrown off because of the crazy time-change...aaarggh!

Congratulations on your precious bundle. Did you not grow leeks this year? I saw some baby leeks at the garden store and thought "shall I buy some and have a go" then I thought again. I'm going to wait until someone tells me exactly how to do it!

Congrats Kelly! Your little one will be out in the garden with a spade digging up your seedlings in no time.
