Back in February I thought to myself, I wouldn’t mind just one more nice snow. One more excuse to snuggle up with a good book by the fire, bake, and put the outside work off just one last little bit. It sounded like an awesome idea, actually.
And then we started having 70 degree weather, things started poking up, and nothing sounded better to me than spring. I fully packed away winter in my mind, and was heading full force toward our garden chores.
Now that we have new things planted and spinach and such starting to poke up, Mother Nature decides to send us a late season snow storm, one that’s threatening to dump 4 inches in our area. So JGL and I had to get creative to help make sure our newest additions to the gardens. Our weapons of choice? Plastic water bottles that need to go to recycling–I cut the bottoms off and used those for the little seedlings, and used the rest of the bottles to help protect things like the clematis. The beautiful cold frame is now on top of the strawberries.
Moral of the story? Be careful what you wish for, folks….
