We’re into the last week of February … can see March at the end of the tunnel … but as far as I’m concerned, and with apologies to those who have birthdays and other treasured celebrations this week, this month cannot end fast enough. I don’t know another southern New England gardener who doesn’t feel the same. In spite of the sun’s beams warming the frozen ground; the clear, sharp-blue morning sky, and the promise of rising daytime temperatures, February’s gloom remains. Under the same conditions next week, the outlook will be completely different … it will be March … MARCH – the month spring starts! It can’t happen soon enough.
