Spring’s already here, at least this week
by Andrea Elizabeth
While the poinsettia’s fade before the ever-green and flowering mural painted for me by my friend,
the frostbitten daffodils emerge
as do shoots of a longer stemmed variety
The germinated bluebonnet plants are raring to go as well.
I’m going to try to pick up some vegetable plants to put inside the western facing upstairs barn window until Pascha/Easter, when danger of frost is usually passed. I’ll just have to lug up some water every day because of its already present, un-air-conditioned greenhouse effect. I’m hoping that getting a head start this year will help me yield more fruit before the scorching heat begins.
