The March Warm-Up Is Here

We thought it would never come but all things do end. Anyway, beautiful sunny winter days won’t be around for a while now. Spring is very nice but until all the snow has melted and the frost is out of the ground it’s messy and dirty. However, good spring rains will wash the dirt away and help the ground thaw. Meanwhile, leave your boots outside the house, preferably outside the porch.

I’ve sown seeds in pots. This time it’s only flower seeds for my window boxes. They’ve germinated and now I hope they’ll grow into nice plants ready for transplanting. I still have to buy the materials for constructing window boxes. I’m attempting to do it myself. At Canadian Tire they will cut to size, I’m told. I must remember to get stainless steel nails or screws. Then I have to line them with something so the wood won’t rot and I have to paint them and I also need brackets to attach to the house.  Doesn’t sound like much but it’s a lot of work. Also, I have to stain the two porches this year again. And I haven’t even mentioned the gardens yet.

Well, I did squat all winter so time to get ready for sweaty work.
