new season old habits

Amazing.  The coldest night of the winter was the first night of Spring.

It was 17 degrees down here.  We covered the plants in the greenhouse and brought the most tender young plants indoors.  Everything made it.  Honeybees, snails, mosquitoes, butterflies have been knocked back, but there will still be blooms for them when they come back.

The greenhouse is nearly full already and we're feeling behind planting.  Very soon, plants will have to leave the greenhouse and go into the ground.

Old habits die hard, I guess.  We went ahead and got a permit for the Cookeville Farmer's Market.  So, even tho we're not selling shares, you may see us this summer.  Lulah has a nice flat of snapdragons started and we may have to bring her in with flowers, and tomatoes.

It's good and well time for this season to crack open.  Let's hope it's a good one.
