the ground has thawed!!!!
On a whim, I brought my fork out to see how frozen the garden was. But, NO ICE! The soil is beautiful and very workable. I'm amazed. Maybe all of our snow cover kept the ground from freezing hard this year. Last year, it was frozen solid in mid March and I couldn't do anything until early April. Well, now I'm starting to think about pea seeds.... Hhmmm. Just a row or two. Planting peas by St Patrick's Day would be great.
