Today is May 1st and we have fallen back a few weeks, with a late arrival of a winter storm. This spring was moving along ok, maybe not as warm as we would like it, but ok. Our garden is waking up just fine with parsnips, onions and rhubarb all growing nicely. Since the soil has been snow free most of April, the soil is warming up and drying out. We are hoping to soon start planting some cooler weather plants like peas, parsnips, rutabagas, cabbage. However, this morning the temps dropped into the mid 20's and an inch of snow lays on everything that Mother Nature could touch. Now, we start to wait! Again!
