On Saturday I’ll be talking to Colorado Ron and Bubba DaVinci on the BHM Radio show. If you get a chance, check it out. www.backwoodshome.com/radioshow These are always a lot of fun — join us if you can.
Our strange, spring-like weather’s been holding out and yesterday I even disced the garden, weeks ahead of when I usually can actually garden. But this weather may not hold and I wanted to get the rotted manure and straw mixed with the soil in case it starts to rain. But the beavers say it’s going to be a dry summer, so I tend to believe them. (They didn’t lie about it being an open winter, did they?) Nature’s weather forecasters seem to be way ahead of the Farmer’s Almanac and the weather service! Already the robins, red-winged blackbirds, geese, ducks, and killdeer are back — also a couple weeks early. I’m even thinking about planting peas and spinach. — Jackie
