There is no shortage of weather conversation happening right now. We get it, it is April and snowing. My question is, is it really that bad? A few weeks ago as significant inches of snow still rested on the ground, a friend asked me, "So, you really think the snow will be gone in time for your planting party." I answered with an emphatic and almost insulted "YES!" Now, I am not so sure.
The snow we have right now is a little different than what we had in the winter months. The ground warmed up enough to thaw and the most of the snow sitting on the ground now will seep into the soil providing much needed moisture. It also means we won't have water in our basement. Yay!
Will we plant blueberries on April 27? I hope so! A lot can happen in a few weeks and know for certain, spring, or maybe summer by the time it gets around to it, will prevail.
