If you had asked me last week (when the snow was piled high in the dooryard ) if spring would ever show up I would have told you, “Not real soon.”
But with three warm days strung together I can feel spring inching its way in. The huge mounds of snow have gone and the dooryard is clear. We have seen robins flitting about looking for worms. The colors on the purple finch and the yellow finch have brightened considerably.
My sweetheart brought home a soil thermometer yesterday and today when I stuck it in one of the raised beds it read 54 degrees. Peas can go in soon!
