Well, the first day of spring is here. While it isn't quite the weather we had hoped for, the days are appreciably longer and the temperatures are a lot warmer than they were a few weeks ago. The colder than usual weather has meant that the snow has melted slowly, so we have avoided flooding problems in and around the barn.
We can't wait for the snow to be gone. According to my planting schedule, our first batch of peas should have gone into the garden this past weekend; however, the garden is still under about a foot of snow. We decided to start the peas inside so as not to slow down the start of season.
