Yes indeed, it is officially March and that means Spring! Outside is looking like spring too with daffodils in bloom everywhere, the trees are slowly putting out blossom and the forecast is …….. SNOW???????? Apparently the rain from yesterday has turned to drizzle this morning and is going to degenerate into snow by this afternoon. I am sure it will be just a bit of the damp wet sort of snow, but darn it, I am ready for spring. If the snow arrives, look for a picture this afternoon.
Until then I am watching my little seedlings. I finally sowed the first batch last Thursday, and some of them are already showing signs of germination. Mainly the lettuces and basil. I realised when I was looking at them that I do not have a purple basil. I will just have to order a bunch more seeds because just one packet, plus postage is a waste. I wonder what else I will feel compelled to order?
Yesterday on the new radio show (www.radiosandysprings.com Americas Home Grown Veggie Show ) we talked about sowing seeds, average first frost, and getting way too many seedlings – one of my failings. The show was great fun, so take a listen when it is online.
