I spent the day yesterday inside the old Dunster School house, immersed in talk and discussions of soil, germination, planting, pruning, composting, and other garden related topics. As always it was a very interesting, educational, and beneficial experience.
What a shock it was after the gathering was over, to walk outside to the white wintery world that is still our reality. There has still no visible signs of spring around here. It has been weeks since the temperatures have risen above the freezing levels, and there is no sign it is supposed to in the seven day forecast. This morning we woke up this morning to -26C (-15 F).
