Waiting for Spring

February always seems like the longest month of the year; all 28 days. This February seems longer than ever. We have had more snow this month than all of winter and the cold days are not going away. In fact, we are in the midst of another winter snow blitz as we post this blog. We are peppered with a warm day every now and then, where you can shed the winter coat, but it is just a tease of what is to come. Perhaps that is why it is such a long month.

I’m also looking at seed catalogs and dreaming about a bountiful harvest from my backyard garden. I’m anxious to start to work in the dirt, plant seeds and see nature take its course. The taste of fresh tomatoes, sweet corn, lettuce cut from garden is something I’m longing for. A back yard garden is not only good for your health; it is good on your wallet. You can harvest loads of fresh fruits and vegetables for pennies comparatively.

The sun is coming up earlier and setting later. In walking the dogs over the gardens in the snow, I can visualize the vineyard I am going to plant this spring, and the straight rows of corn in the field.

Maybe all of this dreaming of what is to be -is making February longer; but it is my way to get through the longest month of the year…February. Let us know how you get through February and what your dreams are for Spring. It will be here before we know it.
