This has been a week of dirt...

1. Monday evening Husband and I went to see the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band concert. It was a last minute treat and we ended up getting excellent seats. The concert was terrific! I haven't listened to their music for years... now I'll have to dig out the old CD to put on my iPod.

2. Even though we still have a lot of snow, the crocus have bloomed in the dirt beside the house!

Trying to move snow away from the house as the resulting melt water is sitting. Husband is looking to where he can drain it.

Yesterday I also saw the first Robin of spring (4 in fact) and a very large butterfly or moth.

3. Our planting room (aka heated garage) is full of seedlings, and we have already had to transplant quite a few as they have outgrown their peat pellets.

Pepper and tomato seedlings

SEEDLINGS GONE WILD! They'll flash their roots at anyone!

4. We can finally see the gravel driveway! Though there is still snow is some places.

5. We rented the DVD 'The Real Dirt on Farmer John'
