Friday Follow-Up

This week:

-- Two of my three seed orders have arrived. Our average last frost date is April 15th, but it's time to start planting cold weather crops and plant the warmer weather seeds inside to be transplanted when the time is right.

-- I am enjoying every hint of spring that I am finding. After our snowy December and the bitterly cold January, our weather has mellowed and I'm excited that spring is actually visible this early. The elm trees have their smoky haze-like covering of red leaf buds, the biggest plum tree has tiny green leaves, and the daffodils are about three inches high. I think it's funny that some trees are getting new leaves while the oaks are still hanging onto their dry brown leaves from last year.

-- But we're expecting an ice storm this weekend. I'll be getting ready for that today.
