Yay spring. I've enjoyed reading the blogs of all the pea-planters out there. The ones who plant peas on St. Patrick's Day or the vernal equinox while I poke at completely frozen dirt and weep. Actually, the past week was lovely, with much snow melting and chicken free-ranging, but late winter/early spring can be very cruel around here. As a matter of fact, it's rather comforting to just have normal weather, rather than the unusually warm springs we've had the past couple of years. Really.
