Mini Blizzard ---- again!

Saturday was almost 70°; Sunday started out (3:30 AM) at 54° and dropped in the evening down to 32°.  It is a very cold 17° this morning but the sun is shining and it is supposed to warm up and melt all the snow.  The rest of the week looks pretty typical, days in high 50's and nights above freezing. 

 

I guess I jumped the gun last week when I uncovered the strawberry bed.  I was out in cold drizzle yesterday morning recovering them.  I may them covered until May!

I have thyme( lot of it; the seed is so tiny I just broadcast it) up in a lettuce container under the back porch lights.  Out of 6 pots of hyacinth beans, only two are up.  That is more than enough since it makes a huge vine.  I have plans to do peppers and tomatoes by the end of the week.

Life is almost back to normal after company......We will probably have more over Spring Break (next week)!
Hold a good thought for me please.

  1. For once a winter storm missed us completely! But I saw the radar and that Wiley gave you rain and snow and lots of the mid/southern stakes were hammers. DC is closed again. Hope you get your snow melted soon. I know you don't much care for that stuff. We're supposed to have daytime temps above freezing all week. Yay. Holding a thought for ya...!

  3. We are fortunate to have missed the brunt of this storm. Yay! We have about an inch of snow, and it's flurrying right now. Schools were delayed, but I think they're scared to cancel again, with all the missed days already this year! I don't blame them...and the roads are fine now that it's warmed up a bit.
    Enjoy your company!

  5. Glenda,

    Even though spring is in a couple of days we just had very cold temperatures and snow flakes on Sunday. It warmed a little today, hopefully we will have no more frost, and I can start planting.

    You covered your strawberries? I didn't and mine are doing pretty good.
    I picked up a couple more strawberry plants today while in town.

    Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers especially with your upcoming company.

    1. You don't cover yours all winter? What zone are you in?

  6. Wow! Snow! We didn't get any of that. Sleet though. I'm getting really tired of this roller-coaster weather, aren't you? Maybe it'll be over soon.

    Hang in there. Hugs
