Spring in Georgia

Even when we have an occasional cool wet day, spring seems to have come to us in Georgia.  Everything is in bloom, fishermen are back on the lake, and we are going through our usual hectic time trying to pack for home.  This year was more difficult than normal as we put my folks' place on the market.  They have a van that we are driving home for them, so we measured it to see how much they could haul for its final trip to Alaska.  It can handle 10 totes and a few miscellaneous extras. 
So the task of loading all this into the van and driving it to Washington is our next task.  I think since we are driving two vehicles and we have one seat open we may be able to fit it all in.
Dick's nephew came down from Kentucky and cleaned the tools out of the garage and a bunch of stuff from the pantry.

Fortunately they have a full sized truck.  
Meanwhile, I'm still trying to figure out how to slip in my milk carton garden.  It is really growing well, and if I can get it home, it will give me a head start on my garden.
I have several varieties of Heirloom tomatoes growing, but the beets are doing best.  I may have started them too soon, as it looks like I could have beet greens for dinner before we even leave here.
