Today we began preparing the garden beds to plant soon. They say it might snow tomorrow, so it may still be a bit before we can do much, but we are looking forward to getting starts in the ground the moment it warms up. Last year things were already growing and the planting season was particularly long. It seems unlikely that this year will be the same. But, that’s OK, the warm weather with come soon enough and as is almost always the case, I will wistfully long for cooler temperatures and stormy nights.
