LAKE MACBRIDE— The ground turned over, just moist enough and no ice below the surface. I planted the leftover lettuce seeds from last year and it started sprinkling rain.
Despite the branch busting apple crop last year, there are a lot of flower buds forming. Garlic is up and the spring bulbs outside my library window are pushing through the mulch piled on them last fall.
The last seed tray has been planted with hot peppers, and just in time, as not only lettuce, but spinach, arugula, turnips and radishes all need planting.
One never knows, but there is a good feeling about this spring, even with the late arrival. Here’s hoping all the work gets done.
