I'd love to have a hoop house, but we get too much snow here, as evidenced by the utter destruction of our neighbor's strawberry house. Even the big greenhouse up the road suffered some nasty snow damage this year and I can tell you, these people are very careful about snow control and bracing. At one time, I thought I might like a greenhouse, but I can't take care of what I have in my little plant room!

Well, grey, again and scattered showers, but they are talking sun and warmer tomorrow. I may have to go out in my waders and look at the gardens if nothing else.

Just as Stan was getting ready to leave this morning, he noticed a couple of heifers were out. I climbed into my barn boots and we went out and shooed them in. Unfortunately, there was a gate that needed to be moved and Stan only had some short boots on, so I got the honor of wading through the 8 inches of mud to get the gate and bringing it back over to where Stan was waiting on the grass. Ah, the joys of mud season, which has now lasted WAAAAAAY too long.
