Well, it didn't last long, but there was a whiff of Spring in the air today. And I took advantage of it! Doors and windows were thrown open, sheets were washed and then dried on the line in the breeze, and I finally got around to transplanting my surviving seedlings.
They were a little leggy and I probably should have done this a while ago, so I am hoping that they all survive this stage of their life in my rough and tumble hands.
It was so nice to take all of my potting stuff out onto the porch of my little studio and make a big mess. The dogs romped on the lawn, Sassy bringing me more toys to throw for her to chase. Nick had his own very important dog business to do, but he checked in frequently for a slurp of water and to sniff my transplants.
It is now thundering and going to rain buckets, but before it starts, I checked on the fruit trees. Ah ha! Another sign that spring is surely going to return someday!
The buds on the peach trees tell me that I better figure out what I need to spray on them to prevent the brown rot from getting all my fruit this year. Anybody have a product name I should look for?? The anti-brown rot spray?
On page 271 of the Mommy handbook, it says that we are supposed to share with our children and teach them to share in return. So I sent my snowy weather to my darling daughters, Almost Grown and Not Quite Grown, out in Reno. Now they are getting up to 29 inches of new snow. Of course, I shared my "stuff" while swiping a handful of theirs, so that's how I got a nice sunny day! You are welcome girls! Isn't sharing the best??
Oh! And a big Happy Birthday to MIL who is celebrating her 26th birthday for the third time!! Whoo hoo!
