This is the news from the Morris-Brock garden. It is news i NEVER thought i would have to report. Snow. It's been snowing since 10am or so here this morning, and it's currently 1pm. This is a lot of snow/sleet to be getting, especially considering that sunday it got up into the high 70's.
I had to rush downstairs when i got up and actually dig snow out of my herb pots and then cover them with a towel. AND my poor lone strawberry plant that survived the 120 days of 100+ degree weather, only then to get smashed by freezing temperatures in our winter. I just re-potted him so that we could raise the beds and such (he's got 4 little strawberry buds on him). He's been through so much, and then he got snowed on. Sad face for him. Lucky for us our seedlings aren't ready to plant yet. Otherwise this would have pretty much killed them all. But we don't get snow enough for anyone to complain about it ever. It's mostly just exciting! Snow! Makes me thing of the song that Bing, Clooney, Skinny girl, and Danny Kay sing in White Christmas. "Snow, snow, snow, SNOW... i wanna wash my hair, my hands, my face with snow." Thats mostly the sentiment around here.
I'm guessing it will all be melted by tomorrow. and i'm crossing my fingers that it doesn't become ice.
Thats all from the garden today
