Rain and snow!!

We were delighted to receive rain all day yesterday and snow overnight.  Everything is soaked and I wish my husband could just take the week off and tractor!! It is perfect outside for planting and building of new beds!  We are also finally getting around to finishing our backyard which one day will host classes and events.  The outside fields are perfect for planting and night time temps are supposed to be right at 40 this week, which is perfect!! This will be the most we have ever planted. We are planting in accordance to sales this last year and prospected growth!!  Rows of snow peas, sugar snap peas, shelling peas and fava beans! This will be our first year planting "pounds" of seeds not packages.  We are still learning, making "Gardening 101" mistakes and then going back and regrouping, but overall we are forging ahead and loving it!!  Today I was pouring buckets of sweat in the new greenhouse as snow flurries fell outside with blue skies and asking myself "who told me to put on long underwear!"  Oh yeah it was me!!  Ugh!!  After a quick lunch break and removal of the long underwear back to work we went putting the final touches on the new greenhouse.  Now I am glad school is getting out Memorial Day Weekend I am definitely going to be hiring my teenagers for harvesting!!  Way too much for me to do this year alone!!  Thank you for your support everyone!!  Moonstruck signing off!
