Update on garden prep

It's been a long time since last post, but thanks to Mother Nature whimsy we got clobbered with over 3 feet of snow in February, and while it's slowly melting all beds still fully covered by  it. Overload of snow also collapsed my hoop-house where I was going to plant my seedlings.
 
So for now I'm in waiting pattern. And I can't plant tomatoes or peppers until I clear some of the space under grow-lights.

Another reason for this post is this year garden being dedicated to Anie's Granny, who has been my role model ever since I found her blog. Her tips on gardening have always helped me, and I loved reading her witty posts. She is dealing with serious health issues and can't do her own garden this year, so many of her followers have decided to garden in her name as show of support.

  1. We have had the snow here too. It's in the forecast AGAIN for Sunday into Monday. Enough already! I have seedlings of lettuce and bok choy for the very first time and I'd sure like to get into the garden to spread the compost and seed the snow peas. I too will dedicate my gardening to Granny. Good gardening to you in 2014!

    1. We are also expecting more snow once again. I hope you'll get your bokchoy growing soon!

  2. This winter has been discouraging. I also feel so badly about Annie's Granny's bad news and hope she is soon feeling better and can garden again. A lot of our snow has melted but we are to get a little more also! Looks like you have a start on things. More than I do!! Good luck! Nancy

    1. snow is slowly melting but temps are in low 20s so not planting anything. I'm at least 1 month behind the schedule on tomatoes and peppers so very discouraging this year.

  3. Sounds like you are ready for spring as much as I am! I hope the snow melts for you soon. I too was deeply touched by AG's news and Robin's loss. It reminded me how precious life is, and to live each day as fully present as I can be.
