The calendar is telling me it’s time to start my seedlings. My frozen fingers are telling me that’s preposterous. I may defy my fingers and begin some of the earliest crops, and those that do well waiting to go in (like peppers). There’s nothing that adds a little hope like a seedling poking it’s head up out of the dirt. Any other gardeners up there afraid to trust their calendars? What I DO know is that it is going to be yet another cold week here whether I start my seedlings or not, so continuing the theme of warm and warming seems like a great idea. Before we know it we’ll be trying to think of cold meals to cool us off… right, RIGHT?! I hope wherever you are the weather is treating you reasonably well and you at least have warming company.
