It's finally raining, the temperature is above freezing, snow is melting and all's right with my little world. Once again, I can give some thought to spring planting with yet another (possibly vain) hope that we might actually have a summer this year. Last summer never happened. It was cool and very wet. From the thirty or forty tomato plants, I managed to get about three tomatoes. The potatoes were okay at first but the rested rotted in the saturated ground. Bring Spring!
