And those seeds started in the seed shack in March in Maine are now doing quite well. We have 31 flats started and are fixing to start about 20 more if I can make more room. The Asian greens are already to be put into a colder climate as well as some turnips I started- I know, I know but I can't help my self. I'm a Midwesterner by birth and now is the time to plant this stuff! Last year at a market I sell at, some folks thought I was a witch or something- bringing greens and radishes to fruit too early for mere mortals- nah, I just don't know any better. What's a little snow or frost- that's what they make plastic blankets and straw for.
I haven't had the best of luck recently- on a beautiful perfect day I wrecked my truck. Blueberry pie went flying, accelerator had a mind of it's own and frost heaves in the road set it all in motion. I hurt my pride and my shoulder but all else worked out. Although- take this to heart and heed it from someone who wished they had.-
If you get a recall on your vehicle- do as it says. I just received mine in the mail two days prior to the accident- it encouraged me to remove the floor mat- this encouragement I did not read until after the wreck. If only...
Well, that's just about it in a nutshell- seeds are started, more work to do there. Snow is covering this lovely land but surely will recede soon when the temps hit the 50 mark, as they are rumored to do come midweek.

I hope your Spring is bringing that eternal bubbling about in your veins, may you feel looser, may you be free to wander and wonder at the small things bursting through the earth just at your feet. Something in that tiny stem excavates a person's soul from the deep, cold trenches of winter- the thaw begins as light reaches in and all is made anew once more.
