Spring Fever

Last week we had some bitter cold weather. A reminder that's it's not yet officially spring. It was all the more harsh, because we had a few days a couple of weeks ago that were really really nice. But Friday, the seasonal temps returned, and the sun started shining. With that, we officially have spring fever. We headed down to the garden yesterday for the first time.

The soil looks good, yet still a bit frozen. There's lots of work to do, though. I decided that it was not yet warm enough to plant the Snow Peas. A decision that is basically completely arbitrary, because I don't really have any knowledge except that they can go in very early. We'll start some more seeds inside instead.

Those killer boots came from the local farm supply store for like $10. Love 'em. Except in the summer when they make my feet sweat.

Someone else is excited about the change in season. And the melting it has brought to her favorite swimming holes.

Nola ready for spring

The Farmer's Almanac says early peas can be planted between March 7 and 31. The moon favorable planting dates (whatever that means) are March 11 - 25.

Oh, here is what moon favorable means: The best time to plant flowers or vegetables that bear crops above ground is during the light of the moon.
