Early yesterday I walked outside my kitchen door to toss the morning’s coffee grounds on my garden. What a beautiful morning it was, and hearing the sounds of the robins somewhere close by made me think spring was here. I stopped by the store and picked out some potatoes and onions to plant, not a lot, since my garden is small. But I need the experience of harvesting just a few of my own potatoes each year. I tidied up some plants and planted a few carrot, lettuce and radish seeds.
Then my husband gives me the bad news. By Tuesday we will be below freezing and stay that way until Friday. Those football fans from the north are bringing their weather with them!
I guess that means the frost cloth comes out again. Winter is still here.
