All Day Snow Storm


YES,,, those little white streaks are SNOW coming down. And it did this all day long. Of course a March snow here is the non-sticking kind. Tomorrow should be clear but a little chilly and a nasty east (off the ocean) wind.

We did get some stuff done on the Fen like setting up the tractors and marking rows that are muddy or flooded at the far end making turns with a trailer impossible.
















Tomorrow our 4700 plants arrive. To the "Old Bike Rider", most are Wax Myrtles since the deer done eat them. It sounds like we will  just unload, tag, and load onto the trailers so we can get them out into the field on Wednesday.

The rest of the day was spent re-staining the foyer. It seems like that task will never end. Probably cause it goes so slow with the wiping and reapplying.

I'm so glad everyone liked our Indent-A-Rod post. I just could not resist. Apologies to Elaine (Alaska).

A busy day for sure ! WOW lots of plants 4700 my goodness ! The weather here seems pretty much the same chilly , sunny with cloud and snow that thankfully doesnt stay and we live 6 min from lake Erie and get lake wind affects so its still chilly ! But spring is slowing making its way as our migrating birds have and are returning . Have a good day !

We had that kind of a snow day yesterday. It came down off and on all day, but none of it ever stuck to the ground.

Wow - so busy! that's a lot of planting. We had 50 above today.

Your Indent-a-rod is cute! I must say, though, they won't get very far along the trail in that rig. There just aren't many roads in Iditarod country. We're supposed to be getting 4-6 inches of new snow tonight and tomorrow, and it is the sticking kind. Looks like Marty will have to get the Kubota out and blow a little snow tomorrow--well, he'll probably wait until the next day so he won't have to do it twice. Unlike you, he's done it enough that it doesn't hold a whole lot of excitement for him.

We had our second snow of the year here! Va has taken it easy on us new transplants this year!

Rather you than me planting that lot. Won't the ground be too cold?

The ground doesn't look inviting to plant that many plants :-) :-)

The snow will start falling tomorrow they say but it will melt away already the day after.Cranes has arrived to the lake and it feels like spring actually is just around the corner here :-)

Have a great day!

Oh my, I'm tired just thinking of all the work and sick of snow too. :O)

I guess I lost the list of what you do ?

I just read 4700 plants ?

That is no tomato planter behind the tractor so I can't begin to imagine how you plant plants ?

I do admire your courage ?
