Snow, More Fun
We caught a real break from old man winter. Two warm days cleared all of the ice from the lane. The subsequent frigid Arctic blast turned the mud into a firm surface. Last night's snowfall was within the plowing capabilities of our lawn tractor. The driveway is neatly plowed ready for whatever comes next. When our professional snow removal expert turned in here to plow today, he found the job already done.
Part of today was spent readying the planting bench. Four new fluorescent tubes are needed to replace the tired old ones. Fluorescent bulbs cannot be put in the trash here so the question of what to do with the spent ones remains unanswered. If intelligent restraint controls, we will wait three more weeks before we plant in the basement. Cleaning up the potting bench today suggests a possible early start.
