the late daffodil are blooming. tulips are blooming. there are a few the deer did not get. and now is the time of the dandelion. they will bloom here and there just about all year long. even through the snow if they get a chance. and now is the time when they all bloom at once. green carpets dotted with bright golden highlights. this year’s seedling bed still needs to be emptied of old seedlings. and that has started. then this year’s crop can be planted. if all goes well that should happen sometime next week. my garden is almost too small for a tiller. so the shovel takes out old plants. the rake and hoe prepare the seedling bed. and it is all good exercise. and the rain will give me time to find the envelope to match the seedling spreadsheet. fight the virus, test for the virus, shelter in place, thank a medical responder, thank first responders, show empathy everyone needs some now. we are in this together. we can do this.
