In my defense, I guess that is how you would look at them, too, if you had been in my yard yesterday. It is still too cold to sit or lay on the ground to get a better view of them.
Speaking of sitting on the ground, did I read somewhere that sitting on the ground is how gardeners used to figure out if the soil was warm enough to start planting? If they could sit on the ground comfortably, it was warm enough to plant.
I don’t have to sit on the ground to know that it is still very much frozen and my “grand plan” to plant peas on March 6th, isn’t going to happen. I need to come up with a new date, and I am thinking about March 16th. I don’t know if that is a good day to plant peas temperature-wise, moon phase-wise or otherwise, it is just my new goal. It also means I’d have peas planted by St. Patrick’s Day.
