It's snowing today, after snowing all night, and our garden is under wraps, in plastic bins, on top of a heating pad.
It's just a little too chilly and wet to do any gardening today, other than making sure the plants are happy.
This year, we're starting a new garden area in our tiny front yard. It's covered with boards and chicken wire to keep the cats out - other than that, we haven't done anything to it. We're waiting for our plants to grow large enough and for the weather to get warm enough for planting in the ground (rather than in styrofoam cups).
Right next to our front yard garden area, elm branches hang over the down-below fenced yard.
More greenery hanging over the fence, all draped with snow.
Tiny new elm leaves covered with snow.
Shortly I'll have to get packed to go on a field trip. I hope the weather improves and that the mud isn't too much for the buses!
GARDEN UPDATE: The bins are now out from under the tarp, but it's still snowing.
