The month of March, we know spring will be here, but we’re not quite out of the “winter” woods yet. A bit more snow last night, some coming on Wednesday, and about 4 feet remain on the ground. The ground? I think it’s down there some where. Over and over we are asked, are you sick of it yet? Not really. When spring does arrive, we’ll be ready and happy to meet her arrival. We’ll know what to do. There will be a flurry of activity here at the nursery and farm. Of course, we love that too. After all, gardening, farming, growing plants, growing food, running the nursery……all of this is an integral part of our life. But it’s hard to wish away days. I always feel uncomfortable with this, the wishing to speed up and get to a point in time (or a season) that we think may be more preferable. What’s more preferable than today, I ask myself? We’re o.k. with winter. We’re o.k with waiting. In a very short time the greenhouse will be warmed up ( we actually heat the greenhouse in early spring) , and regardless of snow cover or cold, we’ll have a little micro environment of green growth. The warmth of the greenhouse, those first early shoots and seedlings help transition us from the dormant months of winter to what’s to come as spring makes her way. This morning I looked out to see another 3 inches of snow covering, the sheep happily munching on their hay, and the trees laced in white…….still quite beautiful really.It’s the first of March and winter still feels cozy.
