We haven't had much of a winter this year. With warmer than normal temperatures and no snow to speak of we might just slip into spring without experiencing a true winter, although we have had some pretty heavy snows in March. I'm beginning to yearn for for those planting days when, inspite of a chilly wind, you can feel the warm sun on your back as you bend to plant tomatoes, squash, and okra. The Cherokee Nation has a program that sends a crew to your house to till a 50X50 garden plot for just $25. They arrived this morning towing a tractor on a trailer and wasted no time tilling up the earth for a perfect seed bed.
We'll start planting potatoes on St. Patrick's Day and everything
else not long after. I can already taste Dorothy's salsa she'll make
