End of the Persephone days

Tree shadows on melting ice

By my calculations, yesterday was the last Persephone Day here in southwest Virginia!  That means that right around today, plants will really start growing again, and I'll be putting 2011's first crop (lettuce) in the ground in just two weeks.  Time to hurry up and make my seed order!

If you live further south, your Persephone Days are already gone and you should probably be thinking about planting.  My condolences to those further north --- you get a few more days or weeks of winter.

Our homemade chicken waterer never spills or fills with poop.

Anna and Mark, I've had your site on my favorites list for some time now. THANK YOU for sharing such cool info. with all us aspiring homesteaders. I really appreciate the advice to not start plants with less than 10 hours of light per day! SOOO helpful.
