|A Large Flock of Canadian Geese|
|Hubby trying to spot something, anything. We were late for the Snow Geese and too early for the Sandhill cranes.|
|Hubby realizes he forgot to wave. God, I LOVE Nebraska. Why can't all people be as friendly??!!|
as spectacular as in past years, it was just good to be out and about and enjoying 70's and sunshine.
I didn't want to come home. We met some really wonderful people and I even had a rye bread recipe
waiting in the mail when we got home. I mentioned to a very nice lady how I was still searching for
that "perfect substitute for Beef Steak Rye" and so I am anxious to try this recipe. Hubby LOVES his sandwiches!
March 20 First day of Spring--and I spent the whole morning outside. Despite being cold, it was perfect for setting up a cold frame, starting the massive job of cutting down all the flower stalks and also organizing my work space in the garage. What a mess. I had literally just tossed all the Christmas decorations, etc in there willy nilly and it took a few hours to clear the work areas. I'm ready for the spring madness now.
Inside---the geranium cuttings are doing great. Many are starting to bloom and I am enjoying that
burst of color.
March 21--Sowed Kale, 9 pk
March 24--Sowed One Flat of Salvia 'Victoria Blue'---it's one of 3 plants deer don't eat at my house
March 25--It rained today. Rain... Not Snow.....It's a Miracle. Captured several buckets of rain
water for my houseplants
Sowed: Oregano, and Basils--Cinnamon, Lemon, and Sweet Basil
March 26 --SNOW. Really?????????
March 27-- Daytime high--20 degrees. Spring? Where??
Sowed Tomatoes: Brandywine, Jetsetter, SuperSweet 100, and Yellow Pear
March 28--Last nights' low was MINUS 1. Yup. Sounds like spring to me!
March 29--Sunny and 35 degrees---so I spent the morning in the garden snapping off sunflower
stalks and doing a bit of clean-up. Winds started up and I lost interest.
Snow arrived in the evening. Boo. Hiss.
March 30--Light snow. Sigh.
March 31--Awoke to more snow. I give up. Spring is a myth.
BASILS--, only the Sweet Basil and Blue Spice sprouted. Cinnamon and Lemon basil seed was
old and I should have known better.
CELERY--Doing well, but didn't plant enough....only a 4 pk---what was I thinking?
PARSLEY--Flat and Curly are doing good.
PEPPER--seedlings doing well.
TOMATOES-- starting to come up--Jetsetter seed from friend Miriam was the winner for fastest
Well, outside it might not seem as if spring will ever arrive, but inside--the garden grows!
Hope you all are enjoying getting outside again. Have a good month!
