In Like a Lion....

A snowy March day....

I suppose there is something to be said about the strength with which we are greeting March this year. It is truly a time of transitions. One foot stretching towards the promise of longer days, and the other firmly planted in winter. So, today it's 12 degrees outside, the wind is whipping, and the cows are warm and comfy in the barn. On the other hand, our greenhouse is ready to go. We bought peat for our soil mixture, got the propane heater serviced, and will be seeding our first seeds next week. We'll start with with greens for us, then lettuce, then on to leeks, onions...
I know, because all years are pretty much the same, that the snow will melt, that the fields will turn green, and the cows will be able to lie down on green pastures. Soon, very soon.
