The weatherman can’t seem to make up his mind, we had summer like weather for two or three weeks, now it seems like early spring again. During those warmer days, we planted some garden but with this cool weather we probably will have to plant over. Seeds sometimes sprout and perish if the weather turns too cold and chills the soil again. But as we said, if what we planted doesn’t come up, nothing but a few seed and labor lost. If they do we are that much ahead, and have earlier vegetables.
