I can say one thing about this crazy “spring” weather that has blanketed my garden in yet more white stuff: I’m not alone. I’m feeling a little whiny about the almost 6 inches of snow we got overnight (and the fact that they say more is on the way this weekend), but I know what we’re seeing here is not nearly as bad as what a lot of gardeners across the United States, Canada and the UK have been dealing with.
Snow in April is not at all unheard of here but it sure makes people cranky. I have no words of wisdom for anyone, but soon summer we’ll be here and we’ll be crabbing about how hot and dry it is. Us gardeners are a fussy lot. It’s probably best to just leave it up to Mother Nature. It’s just that sometimes I think Mother Nature might be drunk.
