Snow Day... Did He Just Say "SNOW?"

We're only five days from April, but we got our April Fools joke early here. Snow outside Seattle on March 26th. I know if you live in the Midwest, this probably isn't a big deal. But people freak out here in Seattle when we get snow in December, let alone March.

I just spent about $80 on some plants for the garden last weekend.

So I was not too pleased to see the snow hitting my windshield on the way home from work tonight. Luckily I just bought some empty pots from Big Lots to cover up my strawberry plants because it's been pretty cold this week. I hope it's enough to keep everyone alive.

I don't know if this will be enough to combat the snow, but we'll see. I'd hate to have wasted all that money on plants, but I guess that's the risk you take when you plant early.

See you next time.
