The grass is turning green, but was feeling dry so we gave it a drink and learned the puppies love water. :-)
The weeds are sprouting.
I learned last year that salt does indeed kill plants, but that a generous amount is really necessary to do the job. So I spread 6 50-lb bags over our rear parking area.
|Remember not to use salt near plants you want to keep,|
because it will kill them and make the soil undesirable for all plants.
We've turned the heat off in our house. I've found my short sleeve Ts and flip-flops.
The temperature reached close to 80 degrees F at home yesterday. I think it was a record-breaking day, but I'm not putting my long-johns and woolies away yet. We are expecting snow tonight and I still have several trips to Minnesota before winter is fully gone.
