So as I type this, another foot of snow has fallen, and our garden looks like this:
Quite a contrast from the height of summer:
Ok, so admittedly the watermelons were grown out back, not in the fenced in area above, but whatever. I just wanted to have something green and lush for that photo. Artistic license, folks!
There is reason to have hope, however – the first batch of seedlings are up:
The ones in front are onions, and in the back under the cover to the left are geraniums, and to the right are peppers and eggplants. Allegedly. Once again I have been remiss in assisting with the seed starting, although this year we will be trying a new technique and transplanting to regular potting soil before final planting in hte gardens and window boxes, so I am on the hook for that. Perhaps.
At this time last year we were enjoying weather in the 70s, and we were out on the deck to wash out the seed trays, not shovel it off. Ah, weather in New England. At this rate we are hoping to plant before 4th of July!
