This blog is an extension of my garden notebook. A place to share my plans, thoughts, and observations as I work to create a bountiful kitchen garden.
Strawberries from the Garden

Getting ready for the "Pea" Snow!
No, I'm not crazy! I'm just a little tired of being cold and I'm longing for visions of garden peas climbing upwards toward the sun! My father-inlaw and I have a running joke about the onion snow, and the broccoli snow, and the pea snow. . . Basically, each spring we are ready to get out into the garden and plant our peas. Each spring, we seem to have a series of 'snows' that impede our progress. So, we've resorted to naming them and convincing ourselves that they in some way actually help our garden.
The forecast says we can have 'possible flurries' right on through Saturday. What comes after the pea snow?
