Garden inspection after the snow storm!

After the snow storm last week the temps have reached about 70f today.

First inspection of the garden today and I discover the Vivax bamboo has quite a bit of damage! Several of the 40 foot culms have broken about half way up from the weight of the snow and ice.

But on the positive side of things– crocus are blooming!

So today will be a garden day! A day of cleaning up the tons of limbs knocked out the trees by the snow and cutting down the damaged bamboo. I will probably also clean the vegetable garden beds as our last killing frost is usually the second week of March so it’s about time to sow seeds for lettuce, arugula, and radishes – my favorite spring vegetable!
