As our earth ceaselessly races around our parent star, I want to wish everyone a happy vernal equinox. To all in the northern hemisphere, spring is rapidly approaching. Some of us stilll have freezing temperatures and snow on the ground, and others like myself have had uncannily mild weather and it seems like spring started weeks ago. I wish you all a successful growing season filled with bountiful harvests. And to all in the southern hemisphere as you usher in autumn and your growing season winds down, I hope everyone had success in the soil filled with many delicious rewards for your labors in the garden, having learned something new to try different come next season. Have a splendid day!

A year has passed and it's the vernal equinox again! It's snowing here today outside Nashville, winter doesn't want to let go. Again, I'd like to wish everyone about to start their garden a fruitful season ahead, and to those finishing their growing season, I hope it was a good one!

On Buzzard's Roost we managed to finally get some winter temperatures for two weeks in January and the first week of February, after that we have been swinging from high 30's to 72 with rain most weekends along with some week days.
Here it is the first full day of Spring and we have had a cold front that only got the day temps down to the 60's and last night was the coldest this month at 35f.
For us that means ticks will be thick along with the other nasty, biting bugs of the south.
