After a wet snow, the sun is back out — Happy Spring! — 9 Comments

  1. Zelda,

    Wow, dandelions? Mine are still dormant, but I keep looking! Spring IS coming.

  2. Elizabeth,

    A ROBIN???? Wow. I keep looking but haven’t seen one yet. You’re fortunate, indeed.

  3. Jody,

    Our old ladder was aluminium but plum worn out. The new one is fiberglass and aluminum and is so much steadier. Getting hurt is NOT worth the price of a new ladder for sure!!

  4. Another rhubarb lover here! Mine has small leaves, waiting for that first picking although I have a lot frozen. I have the Backwoods Home issue where Jackie is displaying the most gorgeous fresh baked rhubarb meringue pie and it is to drool over. Mine never look like that. I have a rhubarb bar recipe that is finger licking good when someone else bakes it – gooey and crunchy – never turns out quite right when I do it.
    Dandelions are good too and mine are at eating size. I prefer them cooked but a lot of people like them better raw.

  5. Happy spring to Jackie and Will. That free lumber is a God-send for your hard work. Can’t wait to see the new living room painted. Love to keep up with your blog.

  6. Get rid of those wood ladders! I banned them long ago when a employee took a spill on concrete floor. Permanent disabilities and temporary paralysis. fiberglass only here now. Vine trellises- that’s all they are good for!

  7. Jackie, many folks spring clean but painting the walls, that is really spring cleaning. A new coat of paint can really freshen up a place.

    You sure got my mouth watering with the mention of rhubarb meringue pie. I love rhubarb and can hardly wait too — pie, cobbler, muffins, even just stewed and drizzled with some cream. Yum.
