Today is the first day of spring but you would not know it as we had a late season storm yesterday that brought another few inches of snow. It was beautiful outside today with morning temperatures hovering around 32 degrees fahrenheit and the snow crisp and crusty on the surface. The sun came up and brought some of its spring power to warming the air. A few hours later the temperatures rose to the 40’s but with plenty of snow left to melt.
The gate to the vegetable garden is still blocked by snow but I am thinking ahead to planting peas and sweet peas. Vegetable planting seems a distant dream today, but as we say to each other to keep our spirits up, ‘it can’t last now’.
