Did Someone Say Spring???

by FarmgirlGourmet

I think my prayers have been answered! The sun has been shining and most importantly…the SNOW has been melting! There are patches of grass showing in my yard. Unbelievable! Time to start thinking about my basement greenhouse and starting tomatoes and peppers. It feels weird saying that, as I was just snowed in to my house 2 days ago! I guess it goes to show that the weather can change in a moment and thank goodness it’s for the good! Ok, now to the good stuff….
