We arrived home at 3 a.m. March 20 foregoing yet another night in a cheap motel room for a few hours more drive and our own bed. The heat was on as well as our new back porch lights (yay) to welcome us home. There is still quite a bit of snow (as you can see), but the sun is glorious today. I am working on getting the rest of my plants up from the cellar – post soon to follow.
Everything still works! The bird feeders are full again – I had to pick up a very foreign object (snow shovel) to try to pry my way into the shed to fill them – but the birds haven’t rediscovered my garden just yet. This is what I discovered – Crocus and Daffodils!
I checked the temperature of the greenhouse yesterday – yes, it’s still standing – 60°F! I will be planting up seeds this week. A big shout out and thank you to Sheri at the Unfettered Fox for sharing heirloom glass gem (beautiful) popcorn seed with me! The kids at Thousand Islands Park will be growing it this season. We are going to be growing our own healthy snacks this year.
Last year Donna at Garden’s Eye View shared “Save the Bees” seeds with me for the kids community garden at Thousand Islands Park and we learned all about pollinators. As you can see, they worked!
Now that I’m home, I can’t wait to get out in the garden – especially my own!
