                    I planted one flat of cabbage, and one flat of tomatoes today.

           It's hard to believe that such tiny seeds will grow and become large cabbages.

It's not Spring yet, But...

I know it's coming! The days are about twelve hours long, and while the mornings are normally well below zero, the sun warms things up nicely in the afternoon, and the air is softer. The sky is a deep, warm blue that makes it seem as if it should be summer.
Junebug and Firefly were bred last January. I think they settled, because they act like they are starving, and they seem to be getting wider. I haven't seen any utter development yet, but the muscles around the girls' tails seem to be more relaxed.
The coming of spring also means garden planning! Which I have yet to get to, but there is still time.
