Is Spring Here?


It has been a long and drawn out winter, actually it has been two winters up here. We had a great early winter with good snow for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Then a warm and wet January. Much of the first early winter snows melted. Finally the second winter started in mid February with 24 inches of snow over 4 days. The second winter has continued until a few days ago when warm weather returned and snow began to melt again. We are down to about a foot of snow in the more open areas and scattered bare ground in the heavily forested areas. Several years ago I planted some snow drops. here is my first snow drop of the season. May be spring is on the way but winter does not give up with out a fight. Today April 2ND and the day was sunny and snow off an on, high temperature was 34 degrees. I sowed my first rotation of spring vegetables in the greenhouse today. I plan to sow more in two weeks.
