How can it be that I have too much time on my hands and at the same time: not enough. I spent the morning catching up on blogs that I subscribe to, reading daily posts and even their writings from the past few days. I’ve read the many comments and replies then made my own comments to these thoughtful posts. I was even pulled back in time into the ‘pingworld’; so interested in what I read that I needed to research comments from the past to make my thoughtful comments of today. It was a wonderful morning.
Now, I am behind on everything else that is pulling me. My own post of the day. My household chores. As the weather has come above freezing, I need to battle the ants that have invaded the indoors. While I am also, being pulled out into the garden to turn more dirt and prepare for planting. What about putting on some music opening the window’s and doing some ‘Spring Cleaning’? I’ll be putting that off till the temperatures rise a bit higher.
As the stupid groundhog was incorrect or should I say: as Mother Nature has chosen to dip that Canadian jet stream down over New York, planting the early crop has been delayed.
I was planning on taking the ‘freshie’ to the Bronx Zoo this weekend but instead with the cool forecast above freezing but not reaching 50′ my time is best spent planting: spinach, sugar snap peas, and green beans. I had been waiting for the first full weekend of the month to visit the zoo having found a promotion offer for free admission. I hope the ‘freshie’ won’t mind waiting till the first weekend in May, perhaps by then we will have temperatures closer to 70′, more welcoming to a day’s stroll through the zoo.
I also have plans to start some crops indoors. I have done this before without success, forgetting to water frequently enough. But as I’ve mentioned in an earlier post: I have big plans for the garden this year.
What are your plans for the Spring?
