March 2014 Tennessee "We un's just hangin' around" thread (CHAT)

Praise the Lord - the daffodils are coming up - that tells me the trees and shrubs will be greening up next (old time way to tell spring is coming) and the hard cold weather down around here is done with...


It's about time!

Each year I look for two things that are just about sure "TELLS" of the springtime coming in. One follows the other, and the reason I do this is that it seems the plants around us have a much better idea of what season it is than the weather channels:

1) When you see daffodil greens coming up - they only appear in the very early springtime, once a year. It is vital to them therefore to be spot on time in their growth. They are a plant that is dormant all year round, not blooming in later months, and never coming out of the ground too early. They look like onion shoots, but develop bright yellow flowers that will last a few days or weeks before fading away entirely once again. This happens only once a year.

2) Two weeks after the Daffodils appear, and even during their time of first appearance, if you look to the tips of the dry leafless limbs of trees and shrubs you can see small new buds beginning to open on the ends of branches where the new greenery will come back - and by that you can tell that the plants in your area have been triggered into rising the sap up out of their roots so to begin the business of new growth once more. This too is well timed, and how you can know once and for all that it is time to hatch new seeds for the garden, and prepare garden areas for your next campaign of vegetable and or colour plant growing. It is the start of a new season-looking at the plants and wildlife around you is the surest way to pinpoint the last frost of the winters grasp on the world with considerable accuracy!

Plants can not afford to make mistakes, and are in tune with the seasons to a depth and degree that is amazing...

Kripes - we have ice and snow all over the place - and melt water underneath on the roads that are sure to freeze up by morning.

~Just when I thought the rotten weather was all over and done with!

Lord knows what tomorrow will bring now...

Worst of all - I bet all of my lettuce sprouts are toast! They didn't have a chance to become strong....

To mister AL GORE: DOES THIS LOOK LIKE GLOBAL (F)ing WARMING TO YOU???

Yeah....Wolf beat me to the punch again this month. But in my defense, I was out of town Thursday & Friday and spent all weekend trying to catch up.

It's supposed to get kinda dicey around here this afternoon----keep warm, dry and safe, Tennessee!

I hope everyone survived the ice/snow/freezing rain that hit north of here without too much damage or inconvenience.

The rest of the week looks like fairly normal March weather.

Have a great Tuesday! (Justified is on tonight....)

I tell ya what - it's iced down so nasty around here that neither the trash service or the mailman have been seen for days. Talking to my insurance guy this AM when i paid my bill I hear there are claims piling up like old newspapers, everything from trees falling on houses to wrecks all over the roads.

Luckily the power has stayed on, no trouble there.

I have never seen garbage trucks with plows attached, but I HAVE seen school busses with plows attached----the drivers would each plow their own route and then go back and pick up kids.

A WONDERFUL Thursday her---but rain is on the way. Stay safe!
