First Day of Spring

First Day of Spring

The Vernal Equinox has finally arrived so today the amount of daylight is equal to the amount of darkness…or something like that. More importantly, it means spring is here. We may still have some cold temperatures and perhaps even snow to deal with but there’s no going back to winter at this point.

Soon enough, English peas and spinach, beets and broccoli, carrots and kale and all the other early spring veggies can be planted. Get a little loam under the fingernails. Watch the birds build their nests. Smell the good spring air on our Swiftly Tilting Planet. Welcome, Spring-you’re looking quite fetching!
