SPRING IS COMING! I've been outside several times today without a coat. Too warm, a hoodie is good enough. Supposed to be even warmer tomorrow, 25F I think. Excited! May get a dusting of snow this evening but as long as the temps keep us warm I don't care.
Isn't it nice to have warm weather. Not that I'd know anything about that. We have had single digit temps about half the nights for the last week. I swear our soil will never thaw. Usually I'd have seedlings besides onions outside and the onions I'd have downstairs and going out during the warmest parts of the day. Not this year. My onions are staying indoors and I'll have to start my seedlings soon, but they may need to be potted up instead of planted.
The seedlings look happy and healthy. I bet they enjoyed their time outside too. I woke up to -8˚F and it reached 20s today. It should be in the mid-30s this time of year. I am about a week behind on my seed starting schedule, but I don't think the garden beds will be ready to plant anyway. We still have so much snow that needs to melt.
They sure look nice and healthy. I've put some of mine in the ground and they are loving the rain...and so am I!
We used to talk of weather patterns, but right now it's hard to detect any patterns - it's just random weather!
Lucky lucky seedlings! We had MINUS 26 this morning. Still over 5 ft of snow on the ground. But yet, it MUST be spring, because I'm back bothering people on blogger AND I started a tray of perennials yesterday. Must. Stay. Positive!!:D
Wow those onions look like hair!! We have had heavy rains over here in Issaquah and now the sun is peeking out. It is definitely spring rain going from heavy to mist to heavy to misty. The hummingbird is coming in and out and we have tons of fat birds ready to make their nests out in our yard. I haven’t even started a single seed yet so despite your health issues you’re STILL ahead of the game!! You GO GIRL!
ps my dog toby is busy burying a cherry tomato in my couch (ew) in hopes for some “real” garden fresh ones this summer. I told him he needs to take it to his bed but he is enjoying rolling is around for awhile and licking it first. Not sure what he thinks he’s got but he is loving his little treat. He loves carrots, peppers especially red and orange, and all kinds of other veggies. I think he is part bunny.
I have a store bought onion that sprouted out. Perfectly happy to think spring is close enough. I figured if it made all the effort, I would set it on a pot of dirt to have a go. Now I'm committed to placing it outside during the day and actually saving it the loveliness of a chilly evening.
