I never thought that I would say that I am looking forward to having a snow storm.
But I am.
Because that means that once it’s passed through our region, the temperatures will warm up, the snow will melt, and we will finally get to see the garlic tops poke up from the straw.
It’s an exhilarating moment.
One that we wait for each spring. Call it a tradition.
Until then, we will sit by the fire, watch the impending storm and dream about 2017’s crops.
If you’re from the Maritimes, enjoy the storm and be safe; if you’re not, think about us Northerners as we brace for what is looking to be a powerful Nor’easter.
Happy garden planning!
