Are you feeling glum that your temperatures refuse to soar to the heights you're ready and wishing for? Getting depressed that you're still experiencing a little frost on clear nights? This post is designed to make you feel lots better about the fact that although spring may be only lurking on your horizon, it will truly be making an appearance near you soon.
The above is my pumpkin patch all eager and ready for lush, green, trailing vines of squash and pumpkins. But not quite yet.
This is the field garden that's all set to be planted out with all those crops that take up lots space such as potatoes, beans, peas, pickling cucumbers, broccoli, cabbage, sunflowers, tomatoes. But not quite yet.
Here we have my twenty-six 4'x 8' raised beds bursting with carefully composted soil which has been warmed by the sun, turned industriously by six trillion fat earthworms, and full of nutrients just waiting to be sucked up by the roots of sprouted seeds. But not quite yet.
One look out any of my windows and you can see that spring is not gonna be happening any time soon in my neck o' the woods. After seeing my white, white world do you feel better about your current temperatures now?
