We're going from 80 degrees F. to snow warnings tomorrow. My garden is hanging on for dear life.
Last weekend, we went to the Arboretum plant sale, and I bought another laurel tree. I think I know what killed the last one, so hopefully I can keep better track of what happens to it. I also bought a marjoram, and orange mint. I have no idea what we'll do with orange mint.
Last year's cutting lettuces have come back again. I never thought I'd have lettuce overwintering two years in a row in Nebraska (really, last year should have been a fluke) and while I'm pleased to have the lettuces, I know this isn't a good sign.
In other news-we saw the first Ruby Throated Hummingbird last weekend. I hope it likes snow. Poor birds, they must be so confused. I should get the hummingbird feeder out...but gee whiz, it might well freeze! The barn swallows are back as well.
Last evening, I served the first pea shoots of the season. Tonight, I'll be covering them with a tarp.
Come on, Mother Nature-cooperate a little, OK?
