Okay everybody, let’s all chime in together in four-part harmony and sing the praises of our delightful spring weather. Hasn’t it been just glorious, the weeks after blessed weeks of non-stop precipitation and perpetual overcast? Just when I think it is finally going to warm up an be nice we get another cold front blowing in, the daytime temps drop down to the low 40s and the nights border on freezing. Let me tell you, while this is hard on the plants, it is murder on the gardeners.
The Adopt-A-Stream Foundation has announced four different meetings for landowners along four different Snohomish County streams to explore ways to improve salmon habitat and water quality.

I don’t know about you but I am so sick and tired of this relentless cold and wet weather I could just spit. Every where I look it seems to appear that spring is here but it sure doesn’t feel like it. Days in the low to mid-40s and nights still in the 30s. The ground is so cold and wet that I have absolutely no desire to bend down and pull a weed or plant a new perennial. My vegetable garden soil in my raised beds is ready but every time I think I am going to plant some new transplants it is raining again. What’s a gardener to do? Go to the Home and Garden Show of course.
