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.
