Diary 3/17

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  Visited a friend in the valley today and saw her yard as mine will be sometime-hyacinths, cherry blossoms, and new green leaves on shrubs.  I am happy admiring my first daffodil. Still cold, but breaks of sun today.  Any sun warms the greenhouses, so it is all good.  Quite a few things have popped up, but they need some warmth to flourish.  As I see the new peas, it is time to plant some more.  I spotted a few carrots, too.  In time, it will all grow.  Germination is the hard part.  Yes, the cauliflower is in the greenhouse now.  The hard part is to plant it at the end of summer.  It always seems strange to be planting and it can be difficult to tend babies when it is so hot and dry, but when you think about it, the beginning of September has the same day length as early April.

  1. You are always a bright spot in these dreary days. I look at the pictures and get to smile. Love the new watering boy. When we talk again I want to know about the new tool that hangs. Couldn't quite figure it out. My daughter-in-law is starting her organic farm. So far, baby chicks, fruit trees, blueberries, and raspberries. She hopes to plant grains for the winter markets. Of course, a first born baby girl coming in June might slow her up a bit. Keep up the good work Sarah, Spring is on it's way!!


I love to hear from you, especially if I can help with your efforts...
