The three of us spent the –somewhat misty– day in the garden. There were some short bouts of rain and a few peeks of sunshine, but for the most part our day in the garden was filled with weeds, dirt, and black clouds overhead. Luck for us, the majority of the rain sprinkles were during our lunch break.
The garden is looking soooo good now. It is always refreshing to pull all those winter weeds out right before spring comes… or the snow. Trevor and Cami ripped out weeds and leftovers with the hoop hoe and I measured and marked the new long beds with stakes and magenta twine. Magenta.
Now we’re ready for a good snow and then spring to finally arrive next month. You heard me. Next month. In fact, it’s common knowledge in our area that at our elevation of 2,800 feet, there is no point in planting anything before Mother’s Day. And it’s true. For the most part. We still cheat a little and start in mid-April.
So with the hopes of building our greenhouse this month, I am expecting to get some seeds out there before the snow leaves for the year. Oh, I so hope we can get to the greenhouse this month. We’ll see. Keep your fingers crossed!
