When over a foot of snow fell just south of us yesterday I swear I wasn’t smug. And a good thing, too. This is my patio. On May 3. We will probably get a few inches. Then rain and cold weather. It may sound premature, but I’m wondering if we’ll get a summer at all here.
This is our vegetable garden, on May 3rd. To say we’re off to a slow start at Casa Renfield would be an understatement. Conservatively, we are two to three weeks behind normal. Last year, we were already harvesting leaf lettuce from these same beds.This is the new fern in my office. I needed it. It’s green, lush, and untouched by snow. Just saying.
