you know it has been a long, cold winter when plus two feels balmy

That is what Linette told me the other day. And the sure fire signs that spring is coming are out: the sun shines longer, I am dressing in lighter layers, and despite our still frequent snowfalls, I can guarantee that the snow pack is slowly but surely melting. However, that said, I should be honest and note that I traded my down jacket for a t-shirt earlier this week and my arms are still kind of cold. With spring in our hearts and a nasty case of the after-work-blues, Linette and I went for a little “let’s find spring” walk this afternoon and found a few promising signs that spring might actually make it this far north.

While on our walk we just had to stop and check on the green house, of course. At this point the doors are still barricaded by 2+ feet of snow and if you look carefully you can see that Linette is standing at doorknob height…

However, I have every reason to believe that in three weeks we will be readying our seedlings (that’s right, they popped through!) for their new home in the sunny, warm, not snow barricaded green house. Well it might be a little longer than that…
