BEAU-tiful photo, havalotta! What did you do, shovel all of the snow away and uncover that little guy!?

Last March I was in sitting in my shorts by our cabins pond when I took that photo. Yesterday we had minus zero.

Yeah...and here I was thinking we were going to have an early spring (and not because of Punxsutawney phil prediction). Boy was I wrong!

...At least I'm getting a head start on some vegetables---they've all germinated and are enjoying the sun porch--even when it has dropped into the 20s outside, and below freezing on the porch over night. Spring is here, but the snow won't stop! We are supposed to get an inch over night...and more on Friday, so you are not alone.

I prepped my flats just yesterday...They're all planted and raring to go.
All I need to do is water them in when it come time to start their germination.

Last year, I decided I should start earlier and plant more. Well, I started a couple of weeks ago and planted *some*...so, it is a start.

April's when I start watering the tomato seeds in.
The others usually follow two weeks apart one by one until it's time to scatter and plant....That being JUNE here in the U.P.

So far, I've only planted some peas, radishes, kohlrabi, and some lettuce--oh, and some garlic about a month ago. I know garlic is supposed to be planted in the fall, but I never got around to it. I figured I'd give it an early start and see what happens. ...Originally, I planned to get them to sprout and then get them to go dormant for a bit, then back out in the spring. We'll see what happens.

Next year I'll have to plant MORE.

Sage, have you looked at photos of the juvenile red-wings. The yellow that is outside of the red on their wings isn't that yellow when they are young and the red seems to cover less area on the juvies too. There is a tri-colored blackbird but those are out on the west coast....it would be beyond highly rare to see one in fla. Those have an outer white stripe below the red instead of the yellow that the red-winged blackbirds have.

This link shows the many differences in first year, second year and after second year (mature) red-winged blackbirds.
