Springing up

The snow is going...so slowly...but it is going.

Outside enough has melted to reveal some bulbs starting to emerge.

 On the living room windowsill I've got a small army of herbs growing. I'm hoping to take these to the Seedy Saturday event in Trenton in a few weeks.

I've dug my way through to the greenhouse from the small barn and have sown peas, parsnips, lettuce, leeks and some onions in one of the beds in there. The water is still frozen, so currently the most effective way of watering the seeds is to dig up more snow from outside and sprinkle it over the bed. Effective but not necessarily easy!

I'm planning to get some plastic onto my beds to help them thaw out a bit so that I can get those peas into the ground - a greenhouse would definitely be convenient right about now!

Ours is missing a few side panels after the high winds in the winter, so it's not quite as warm as it should be, but it's definitely better than nothing!
