Sorry for the cross post but dang, a high of 58 expected today and 64
tomorrow, methinks spring has sprung. I even broke out the rototiller
yesterday and worked up the ground in 2 small plots. Its T-shirt
weather in Albuquerque!
Lets see, time to get the peas in the ground fast and.................
Snow, we don't got no steeeeenkin snow.......
Well, Spring is a fond hope here in Spokane WA, but I went out
to the garden yesterday and the spinach I seeded late last fall
is coming up. In 30-35 degree weather! I went out this morning
and put on the bird netting (they're already fenced for rabbits)
to hold down the feasting.
1 week till initial thinning, 2 more to baby leaves, and full
plants before the end of March. If it all doesn't freeze :-).
Here in New Brunswick (Canada), I awoke to some coals still in the
woodstove, and a temp of minus 30 degrees Celsius with the windchill. And
there is still plenty of snow down, and the ice won't be out of the lake
until mid April. I gotta retire down south.
About all the gardening I can do is look at the seed catalogs.
Nice to hear someone gets to play in the dirt.

Won't be spring here for awhile. Here in Nebraska we still have 2 ft of
snow on the ground, and with temps remaining at freezing, we'll be lucky if
all this snow is melted by June.
I still prefer the snow and ice over the crowds and road-raged drivers in

Well, in my area where snow is a miracle, we got two inches over the weekend. Of
course it was melted by 10am the next day and this, a few days later and it is
75 degrees. So, while spring is certain around mid-March, that's still several
weeks away. I won't be taking down my greenhouse till end of March...or so.
it got up to 45oF here in Milwaukee and I already had a spring attack on monday.
a couple robins but couldnt con them into singing... spring isnt here yet.

I live in northern AR and have several bright patches of miniature iris
(Purple Gem)blooming now. It has to be normal because this is the third year
in a row in which they bloomed around the twentieth of February, and this is
the third year since I planted them. The only other explanation I can think
of is that miniature iris in AR and TN aren't normal! :)
