Homesteading In The Pacific Northwest

Tuesday, March 1, 2011


March is a month of "possibilities".  The Vernal Equinox is March 21...and it is "possible" that Spring might appear on time...My crocus and tulip bulbs have started peeking out of the ground ...

 My seed potatoes have arrived and it is "possible" that the ground will be warm enough for me to plant them on St. Patrick's Day...there are trays of seedlings in the greenhouse; all hoping that it will be "possible" to find a home in the garden soon....

"Dream on it. Let your mind take you to places you would like to go,
and then think about it and plan it and celebrate the possibilities.
Liza Minnelli



  1. March really is the month where the garden wakes up and the earth seems to start breathing again. I am always more than ready for spring's arrival by the time the good month rolls around.

  2. March is such a teaser in the PNW...a few days of sunshine to lull you into thinking it really is Spring and then ...wham! Rain, sleet and hailstones the size of golf fooled me before, March...but not this year...nothing comes out from under the hoops until April 28!!
