April 2, 2010

It's just about spring. Snow has fallen in March and the cold winds mean we still have the heater on and can't do much in the gardens. Still, there is much to do inside to plan for spring.

My basement is full of seedlings and plants that will move outside in mid-April.

Inside fish, frogs, tadpoles

Goldfish, frogs, tadpoles all will go outside. We keep crickets in the green-lined butterfly mesh cages.

At the end of March there was quite a bit of snow on the ground

My greenhouse was surrounded by snow but stayed very warm inside as you can see by the window thermometer:
