The cashier at the local Fleet Supply store smiled at me as if to say, "Don't you realize it's only March 4th and there's still 2 feet of snow on the ground, lady?" My cart contained about 10 seed packets, some peat pots, seed starter mix, a garden fork and...an ice scraper for my windshield. I actually went into the store with the simple intent of pricing garden forks. Then I saw it and had to have it! After all, in a few weeks there will be a run on the store and I may not be able to find one!
I'm not really that far ahead of schedule. I'm going to attempt to grow some Foxglove this year and according to the package they need to be refrigerated for 4-6 weeks before planting. Better start now!
This is a lot of variety for my little garden, but I think I can tuck it all in. Much of it has to be eaten fresh, so I'll probably be giving some away. The acorn and hubbard squashes can be stowed away in a dry, cool corner of the house.
Here is what my garden looks like at the moment.
Here's a sketch I did about an hour ago for Paper, Paint, Pencils and Pens which is a blog where we sketch according to a theme. For this two week period the theme is "Kitchens". (I came up with that brilliant idea.)
Spring WILL come! Hang in there everybody and let's see what your gardening plans are and shalom for now!
