Letters from a Hill Farm
Last week, the thermometer read 70 degrees. The weekend was cooler but the sun was cutting thru the bitterness. the crocuses are up and the dandelions are poking thru. Such promise in the air.And now - it's snowing. Again. Does March ever end?Rats.- Jeff
Yup. Frustration has set in. You might enjoy the video on my blog made by my VT neighbor who is trying to embrace the snow.I love Thalassa Cruso.
I agree, and your header photo illustrates this perfectly. It looks much like northeast PA does, or rather did yesterday before it started snowing again. Now we have a fresh coat of white.
Niki, do you know Thalassa's work? Years ago she had a television gardening show, and also wrote some books. Some people referred to her as the Julia Child of gardening. She had a very no-nonsense, practical approach. I modeled myself after her a long time ago, and am still pretty much the same. Jeff, crocus and dandelion - a long way off for me, I fear. Sarah, I'll check it out. And I love Thalassa too. I don't think too many know her anymore and she deserves a renaissance. Barbara, the good thing about any snow this time of year is that it leaves as fast as it comes!
I am changing how I post your much appreciated comments. Since I began the blog, I've waited to post them until I had the opportunity to respond. Sometimes that has taken a while, so I've decided to moderate them and post them as soon as possible, and then I'll respond when I get a chance. Please do come back because I will answer all your notes to me.Also, you may comment on any posts, no matter how old, and I will receive notice.
