Finding Delight in a Cold and Soggy Spring

Finding Delight in a Cold and Soggy Spring

9 comments

Usually in Maryland as Memorial Day approaches, I have pretty much put in tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, squash and basil, temps are in the 70s and 80s and I'm wearing summer clothes. Not so this spring! It has been rainy and downright cold--my peppers and tomatoes are out there in a pout--and I'm wearing long sleeves, hoodie, socks and boots! What is spring like in your garden?

Today is the last day of February--gardeners take heart and prepare for spring! Although it might not seem like it with these frigid temperatures and snow and sleet still in the forecast--it will happen. Be sure to still feed our fine feathered friends in this weather! March brings all sorts of spring and green celebrations from the full worm moon, daylight saving time, St. Patrick's Day and the vernal equinox--hallelujah!

Spring has sprung and there are many chores for the gardener. However, I find that there are as many delights, if not more, that outweigh the work. See some of the plants sprouting in my garden, and what I am transplanting.

Here in the Ozarks,and in many places across the country, spring is bursting out all over--and this week we celebrated the vernal equinox--when night and day are the same length. And then Mother Nature decided to let us know who is in charge and dropped a blanket of snow over the earth.

Here I am blogging from the road--and spring is popping out all over--well at least in the southern part of the country. We gardeners are getting ready for the next growing season with great anticipation.

This weekend starts Daylight Saving Time throughout most of the United States. We will set our clocks forward an hour—springing forward. When we awake in the morning it might still be dark for some of us early-morning risers; that part might be challenging for a little while. However, we will have an extra hour of light at the end of the day, which makes most of us gardening types haapppyyy!

Hurray it is May and Spring is bustin' out all over--wherever you live! In my zone 7 garden, our last frost-free date is May 15, however I wait a little longer to put out the tender annuals like basil, chiles and tomatoes. See what is happening now!
