Hope I can get some spinach seeds in this weekend, if the garden dries just a bit. Started bell pepper and "Numex Suave" a milder habanero, plus hyacinth bean and Rudbeckia hirta inside yesterday.

Not much happening here in Iowa...Auralie is right, it has been a long, long winter. We are finally rid of the snow cover and had a generous amount
of much needed rain yesterday.  Its supposed to get into the 60's this
weekend so I am hoping for some sunshine and time in the gardens. There is so much to be done with clean-up...seems like I didn't get much done this
past fall...too cold too early!

All of you guys are making me really jealous. Although the temperature
is
above
freezing today - 42 degrees and raining - we still have piles of snow.
Most
of the
yard is clear, but the ground is still frozen, and the fenced vegetable
garden
is still
totally snow-covered.
I do have a clump of snowdrops blooming at the foot of the big boulder
beside the
driveway. One clump of Hellebore that has lost its snow cover is showing
buds
up
about 2 inches. The others have not yet emerged. Some early daffodils - I
think
I planted 'February Gold' there - are up a few inches, but most have not
come
up yet.
There is much that needs to be done. I didn't get much fall clean- up
done
last
year, thanks in part to weather and in part to my struggle with returning
Lyme
disease.
I have not even been able to get down to the vegetable garden so far this
spring -
the steep sloping yard was so icy I didn't dare even try - my 85- year-old
bones are
too fragile to risk it. I'm hoping next week will bring some nice weather,
though the
forecasts so far are for rain. It's been a long, long winter, and I'm more
than ready
for a change.

Spring is here north of Atlanta, even though we went down to 26 yesterday morning. My serviceberry is about halfway finished, the daffs are done except for 2 late bloomers. Grape and wood Hyacinths are in full bloom, the neighbor's Bradford pears are almost finished with their stinkiness, Hostas have their noses in the air and most of my daylilies and Iris are 8" tall
or
so. Miraculously, the cold yesterday didn't turn the neighbor's Japanese Magnolia to brown Kleenex nor does it seem to have hurt the cherry trees. I don't know how well some of my blueberries will fare. Some of them were
in
full bloom and they looked pretty sad yesterday.
