Thaw

It's 60 today. The ground has thawed enough for me to dig into it. And there's supposed to be six inches of snow tomorrow, so I planted all the sugar snap peas and a bunch of spinach. I don't like cabbage enough to plant it here, but I might get a bunch of stuff and start clearing and planting at the OUR center garden next week. Next week...

If it's not like foot deep snow and the ground's all frozen again, but... the snow gives so much moisture to the plants here I couldn't miss the opportunity and peas are... well, they're peas...

So the gardening time starts up again. My arms are sore from turning the soil, but, as usual, I lost my gloves before I even finished the first row, it was too good to feel the earth between my fingers again.
