While I was home my husband and I took a walk past the snowdrifts and out to the vegetable garden to get a good measure of its new dimensions after the lasagna addition I put in last fall. We had to walk through snow to get to the garden, but that sunny area was clear. We were able to get measurements, 11′ x 26′. We laid out paths on paper and calculate that I will have about 188 square feet of planting beds in this area.
As we walked back to the house I saw my first blossoms of the year, snowdrops! Now it really feels like spring.
The daylily shoots are green. I’ll have to start watching closely.
