Tuesday Thread: Spring Cleaning

We spent the day today – the warmest March 9th in the history of the Twin Cities – outside with kids and plants and rakes and shovels and countless thoughts about the weeks and years to come.

Last night, we planted cherry tomatoes, hot peppers, melons, and basil indoors for a garden we haven’t built yet in our new house.

Today I was thinking a lot about cleaning. What does it mean to purge things you don’t need to make space for what you will? Why is this the time of year that feels best to start something new?

What are you cleaning this week – physically and metaphorically – and what are you planning to start new in its place?
