My greenhouse grown cilantro is looking like it is going to bolt since our day temps are close to 60 this week. Just priced chicken wire for the bottom of my beds $75.52 for a 150' by 4' roll of 1" holes. 2" holes are only $35 for the same size roll. But I think the ground squirrels could get thru 2". Caught 5-6 mice indoors already this week.

Canada is metric in temperatures.Have my heat on at 20C which is 70F when it gets chilly. Would love to get back to Australia for trip #4. This time head to Melbourne and see the sights in and around. Did go up the coast to Campbeltown I think it was called, so went by the Twelve Apostles.

Its hard Nancy not to get to excited and plant too early in case there is still ice in the air.  Wow double figures, Mmmmm LOL single ones are rare where I live.  Tirple  F, we get and is no good. But hopefully I have seen the last of over 100 F for this year.

I just made a quiche I think, good tasting. I hope I can get veggies pre-started at nursery or seeds from my collection. Planted late last year did not have anything much for freezing. With prices going up for veggies and fruits I hope this is a better season coming up.

I just made a tomato sandwich for lunch. I picked the tomato straight from the garden and you can feel the sun warmth still in it , beautiful.

  My husband Ken, is starting to be able to tell the difference between the brought veggies and our home grown veggies. He picks it every time now, that our grown veggies taste better. He does not know what I,m cooking or weather its brought or not. So it is great.

We might be having the fires again. March 1st certain fire bans will be in act here in Alberta, Canada.

I found the soil soft enough to pull garden fences from around my tent trailer and put them around veggie garden plots. Will eventually put along inside fenced property line so visiting dogs won't mess on my flowers and bushes. Two double digit metric temperatures as of Wednesday and Thursday. Almost feel like getting a yard sale going, but I don't have all for sale yet.

Whiplash has not healed that I got last May accident driving to Vancouver Island, BC. Taking ND medicine, slow but it is healing, even took a few weeks off from the medicines to give body chance to fight.   Bunny I think is now evicted from underneath my tent trailer.

Yes I think you are right, with the early spring, because it seems to an early Autumn here too. I,m glad, we need rain sooooo bad.  I should pull out all my done summer veggies  and get some Autumn to winter seeds in.

I watch to see if wild bunny is in veggie patch. Going to plant more veggies this season so can freeze. Last year left planting too late and had nothing to freeze and use over winter. If I had those tunnels to put over each row maybe I would have had some veggies last year. Going to try Kohlrabi and artichoke and was thinking watermelon too. Some will glean to church Food Pantry Wednesday mornings. Nice to hear back from you Vicky. Wonder how William is doing?

I found some purple podded organic pea seeds. Just need to build cages to keep bunnies out.

Yes Spring is on it's way here. I did harvest some mustard greens, spinach, and sad radishes, they were all greens and tiny roots out of the shelf greenhouses. There is cilantro in there too. Also some beets trying to grow.Started seeds too on the porch and in one of the boxes in greenhouses the others I cut and waiting for them to regrow. Still need to get my raised beds in and ways to water in them. Bought more organic seed been reading my books and newsletters trying to get excited and remember, when, where and what to and not to plant by each other. Sunday was the new moon so I turned everyone else out and did my thing.
