Snow in April

Today is April 16.  There is an inch of new snow on the ground.  It's beautiful, but it's April 16!

The only gardening today will be on paper and in our basement greenhouse.  Actually, I must confess, the novelty of our "basement greenhouse" is starting to wear off.  More and more it's starting to look like an unfinished bathroom with concrete walls and a couple of light fixtures hanging over a table.  I need a dose of real gardening, real soon!

On the bright side (a much preferred way of looking at things), I think we might have a special treat for Easter Dinner!  I think we'll get just enough of our Spicy Mesclun Mix to toss in with some other greens to make  a special salad.

I'm thinking of going to T & T to look for some gladioli bulbs and maybe other seeds just to banish the sinking feeling the snow gave me this morning.

I looked at your planting spreadsheet too. Very well done.
