It is March, and the weather thinks us a fool, flaunting 60 and 70 degree days, luring us out to put our seeds in early. and I’m biting- putting in,  the Asian greens and Brassicas and carrots that can handle the snap frost that is sure to come still. I’m keeping the majority of my seeds inside, even though the weather outside makes it feel like we are late to plant. March 23rd is the earliest last frost ever recorded in our area, and I don’t trust that the cold will stay away to set a new record.

There is plenty to do in the spring that doesn’t require frost-less nights, and so we are setting up rain barrels, turning compost out on the beds, building grape and kiwi trellis, pulling weeds and muscles and sharing spring things with our wide-eyed (and open mouthed) little one.
