A few weeks ago I got really excited!!!! I woke up early and went to the local Home Depot. I parked close to the garden center, checked my Toms and took a big gulp of water. Yes, now I am ready to shop and prepare for gardening season. Oh yes. I was excited. I remember walking into the store and seeing my fellow gardeners. Some were planning on planting onions. Some were constructing raised beds using kits. But all of us were ready. It was Spring Time.
Fast forward a few weeks....and I'm covering my garden with a blanket to prevent frostbite on my cabbage, broccoli, onions and brussel sprouts. This is frustrating. Gardeners, we now have another season in which we need to plan and prepare for. It is called Sprinter. This is the combination of Spring and Winter. It is when it is warm on Monday, rainy on Tuesday and Wednesday, just nice on Thursday, cold on Friday and snowing on Saturday. It's when we experience the characteristics of both Spring and Winter in 1 week.
Nevertheless, all is not lost. My herbs that I have inside are doing amazing!!! (I have been wondering why my seeds outside haven't sprouted yet......I bet it's because of Sprinter. Hmmmm...I wonder how long it will take the ground to warm?????)
These are some of my thoughts, questions, comments and "could-care-less"...
