signs of spring

Watching the Seasons

I like to watch for signs of spring. Even though we are buried again under 10 inches of snow, there are some signs around. The water fowl are starting to pair off, the squirrels are chasing each other with great excitement, and the hellebore buds are swelling (I peeked last week before the snow).

  • I’m a bit south of you here in Connecticut and we’ve had an above average winter also. Not horrible, but I am really itching to get started with the garden. In the next few weeks I’ll get some seeds started. Can’t wait!

    I really love your site. Thanks for all of the work. You’ve helped me out a lot with many of your posts. I’ll be using your tee-pee trellis thingy for my tomato plants this year.

    If interested, you should listen to the podchef’s gastrocast podcast. He does quite a bit on gardening and the quality is high. He’s good for many a rant on the state of food too…

  • The tepees are a very good set up for tomatoes for me. Thanks for the podcast recommendation.

    I have to comment on another “sign of spring” I’ve just noticed – my pussy willows are fuzzy now.
