Spring is here, but that doesn’t mean that cold weather is done

Ready or not, today is the first day of spring. Recently, some days are warmish, feeling a bit cozy and lazy like spring, and then the next day cold returns with temperatures teasingly close to freezing.

Our calendars tell us it is spring, but Mother Nature decides when she will turn loose of the coolness of winter and really let us enjoy spring weather.

People are anxious for warm weather and are busy visiting local garden shops to buy vegetable seeds and plants.

We humans are feeling itchy, ready to get our hands in the soil and get our beautiful flowers growing.

Be patient a few more weeks and let the warm weather catch up with the calendar saying it is springtime.

And, by the way, don’t plant your tomato plants yet. It’s too early.
