A new month...May...it conjures up for me the budding trees, tulips breaking ground, my asparagus peeking up to see if there are any bunnies ready to snip their heads off, and our mountain bluebirds searching for the perfect box to make their nests. What I didn't expect this morning was 30* temps and SNOW!!! But, yes, there it was...of course, by noon the sun had come out and melted it. Actually we usually have cold weather up until June 15th, hence the short growing season up here in the mountains. I start my seeds indoors to give them a head start, and plant them after the 15th. Everything always tastes better when you plant, grow and harvest it with your own hands.
