Happy St. Patrick's Day! Are you wearing green? If not, consider yourself pinched. I was going to embed a video from "Finnian's Rainbow" -- but all the good ones have the embedding disabled (WHY do people do that??). But just imagine Petula Clark and Fred Astaire here.
I have TWO tomatoes on my inside plant. I'm so tickled. My pollination technique must be hit or miss, though because I'm about 1/3 fruit, 2/3 dead blossom and no fruit. Even so, this has been an interesting experiment. I know that a vegetable plant needs a certain amount of sunlight to produce fruit -- "amount" in length of time (a certain amount of hours), so in the winter they won't make fruit without use of a grow light. As soon as it started getting lighter longer here, though, in a noticeable way, the plants started popping out blossoms. Fascinating.
It POURED rain yesterday once it warmed up (thank heavens it wasn't snow, we'd have had two feet) and melted quite a bit more snow. It's supposed to be almost 60 degrees on Friday, so at this rate we may be snow free by April! It's incredible how quickly it melts.
I have high hopes for an early spring -- and would sure love to plant my garden by the end of April (the cold crops at least). :::fingers crossed:::
How about you? Are you loving spring?
