Yes we are!
It’s finally here….
The very first crocus of the year!
It lives right next to this pile of snow.
There will be more crocus on the way as soon as it melts.
… and there’s more good news!
The first onion seedlings have popped through too!
I planted these last Sunday. Yesterday I checked them first thing in the morning and there was no change at all, just little cells full of seed starting mix.
Yesterday afternoon I saw Ed, one of my onion planting mentors, and he said that once they got going they’d just take off. I held onto that thought amid my worries about too much moisture, not enough moisture, too much heat, not enough heat and maybe I should I have used a different seed starting mix.
I went back last night and voila… there were several little sprouts.
I am feeling encouraged, uplifted, excited, happy and most of all
Spring has officially reached Salem, Massachusetts my friends! Woo hooo!!
How’s your garden growing? Has spring sprung? I hope so!
After the winter you’ve had, I’m glad you can finally see signs of spring. Enjoy!
