Just a Quick Note....

In case anyone is waiting for the word GO from me here, I'll be planting some seeds in my cold frame as soon as I can get into it. We're expecting rain this weekend, that will likely be my first chance in some time to get into the cold frames. Both are impossible to get into right now due to all the snow. I can see into one quite well and there's actually a couple of lettuce seeds that have germinated, even though it's quite early for them, which was surprising. 

There has to be at least two feet of snow still on the garden here, I'm sure not complaining though. Why? Because I have cross country skis and our skiing days are winding down. Often we're able to ski into April, you never know though how long the snow will last and have to make the most of it while it lasts. 

These took about five minutes to dry. Cold and dry, dry, dry day here. My lips are chapped from two days of walking my dog in these temperatures. 


  1. The gardening bug is's that sun coming through the windows. Me too.
    Nice to know you had little lettuce germinate..I saw a red brussels sprouts in my cold frame yesterday with it's true leaves. Amazed!!

  2. Very cool! I can't wait to scratch some seeds in, the lettuce that germinated was from the fall. We had a beautiful weekend here, can't wait to really get my hands in some soil.
