    square-foot gardening, it’s a thing.

    I’m married to a gerdener. They see the world differently this time of year.

    Way too early to plant here anyway….
    And you don’t want blossoms while they’re seedlings…


    Even so, Janis and I are both looking out the window for our cue.

    Arlo is remembering his line from yesterday….Well played, Mr. Johnson, well played….I wonder how Gene feels about the late spring?….And how about Gus and his tourist trade?

    Janis has to go outside and do her rite of spring dance around the bonfire.

    If that’s York County, Pennsylvania, I’m not too far away in Lebanon County, not far from Hershey, Dauphin County (which also contains our state capital, Harrisburg).
    We have just broken out of winter here as of April 5, when we (finally) made it into the 60s.

    This is normal spring. Around here the earliest suggested date for outdoor planting is Mother’s Day and even then you have a chance of frost or snow.

    Arlo heard, “Let’s walk down that garden path.”

    This reminds me I used to work on a tomato farm when I was a kid. Now I miss the good taste of those tomatoes compared to today’s highly acidic grocery store tomatoes.

    Apparently Ludwig doesn’t like to attack little pots of seedlings like most cats.

    @Mrs. H

    That reminds me, the farmer I worked for killed my cat for attacking his tomato seedlings! He ran it over with his tractor. He swerved and gunned the engine. He did warn me first, but it was a stray cat, not a house cat.
