This is March 24 in my back yard in mid-Michigan. Last week was in the 40 and 50s, all the snow melted, and I went to buy seeds. Hmmm...this week we got 5" of snow and 1/2" of ice on Tuesday night and it is still hanging around in the trees. I'm going to be optimistic and pretend that spring really is here. Tomorrow I start my tomato, basil, and flower seeds in flats in the florida room. It will be good to see little green stuff. It's time.
