Spring-like weather

With a week ahead of lovely spring-like days, it's hard not to be enthusiastic about gardening of all sorts.

We certainly have cold days ahead, and frost, too, but what a gift to have a week of great weather, after a winter full of cold and snow (at least by our standards in the Southestern US).

There are cool-season greens to sow (racing against the bolting stimulated by longer days) and native trees, shrubs, and perennials to think about (as well as the hardy and well-behaved non-natives).

But there are also warm-season veggies to start in our warm greenhouses, or above a heating mat -- tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, and tomatillos, not to mention a host of other plants that enjoy a head start on spring.

  1. What else inspires us like the onset of spring? I'm deadly jealous that you can get out into the garden and can't wait to read about your successes this year. Rob

  3. It's a total gift to have a week of wonderful spring-like weather. It's supposed to be 71°F on Friday. Wow. (And maybe, yikes). But I"m not complaining after our long, snowy, and VERY cold winter.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
