Garden dreamin'

Today was so exceptionally warm and beautiful that it got me thinking about spring and gardening. Looking at the calendar I realized that St. Patrick's day is right around the corner... time to get in gear if we want to have peas this year.

The kids and I are pea fanatics. In Michigan we grew 4 double rows of peas one spring -- and ate every pea. Not a single pea made it to the freezer.

Peas didn't grow well in Georgia... so the last time we grew peas was 2004... so here is a picture of my garden from May 2004!

I ordered seed catalogs. As soon as this snow melts, I am going to site the raised bed for the peas. Spring is so close I can almost taste it!

Yes, the spring is in the air and the peas are calling!

Wasn't it just yesterday you were up on your roof, when the snow was so high it actually reached your roof? Will wonders never cease.

We almost hit 80 here in DC yesterday. A record! Snow? What snow?

80 in DC! It seems like a month ago that you had lots of snow.

There sure is lots here in CT.
