It’s the last day of February and everything is waking up. We have mulberries growing on the mulberry trees, potatoes coming up in the garden, grass that is turning green again, and carpenter bees eating our outbuildings.
Spring has sprung, and there are no frosts in sight.
I admit: I thought we had more time than this. Normally we get one last frost near Easter, but it doesn’t seem to be the case this year.
Unless something freaky happens, it’s time to start planting tomatoes, corn, cucumbers, melons and all those warm-season crops.
What a weird winter! We had a devastatingly cold December, then a mostly mild winter after that – and now, there are new leaves growing everywhere!
Once I finish editing today’s video, I think we’ll have to spend some serious time in the garden.
