Finally, it looks as though we might be actually leaving winter behind. Although the gray, damp, dreary weather today with a temp of only in the low 40s doesn't feel as much like real spring time in our northern clime as the sunny 70-some degrees did yesterday.
Back to wearing my down work jacket today as I finished up the asparagus patch and started in on more work on the strawberries.
But enough idle chatter. On with the comparison pictures.
Yikes, still very much in winter time, weren't we?
Okay, showing a little bit of hope.
Wow, quite the change! Although we still have
patches of snow here and there, all my
planting areas, including these raised beds,
are finally free and clear.
The grass is even greening up.
Just yesterday I got those two cold frames on the beds I want to get planted out early and first. I'll use them mainly for radishes, lettuces and other tasty salad greens. The salad fixings I've been able to purchase from our organic co-op in town this winter have been good, but what can compare to salads made from your very own homegrown, super-fresh veggies? Can hardly wait!
