Here's what a terrible winter it has been -- on Sunday it was rainy and 50 degrees and I was elated. I was walking around with a light sweater and a rain jacket and couldn't have been happier. It felt like spring and I had a bad case of spring fever. I know I can't plant anything -- it's far too wet out there still. Look at the puddle in this container along the driveway:
And a nice layer of gravel left over from the shoveled snow piled on top of them (thank goodness it's all melted at last):
I can't believe there's still spinach in that container. I literally haven't seen it since December. But I don't think we'll be eating it:
I remember last year when I went looking for seed potatoes and was told that they had all sold out. So spring fever on Sunday had me thinking of potatoes. Lee laughed at me. We stopped by Agway and they had nothing. Lee laughed at me. We stopped by Van Wilgen's and wonder of wonders they had many different kinds! I laughed at Lee. I came home with four bags, 2 each of Blue Adirondack Blue and Banana (a type of fingerling). I even pulled all my seeds out of the fridge to start thinking about what I will plant this year:
Stay tuned for seed starting and before too long we'll be able to get outside and tidy up now that the snow cover is all but gone (one tiny little patch by the shed still):
I went to the gym tonight, so I'll be in great shape when gardening starts up again!
