Daytime temperatures have been inching towards the high teens during these past two weeks. By middle of this week, it will even hit the first 20 degree of the year. This kind of weather makes me want to plant things! I wish to be outdoors working the soil of my vegetable patch, sowing seeds, seeing these sprout out the ground, watering baby plants and watching them grow.
And then, there is my 7-year experience as a backyard gardener. This is holding me back and preventing me from acting too hastily. March is the month when the days can be deceivingly warm, tricking your mind and luring you to plant. The spring nights are still too chilly and the ground gets so cold that seeds sowed this soon will be shocked into a permanent coma.
Ah yes, I will have to be patient and wait. Right now, I will make do with preparation work. Be content busying myself with seeding pots and beds for early indoor germination. It is still fun seeing little plants grow indoors, behind the safety of glass windows. I shall not be lured and deceived by this ping pong weather.
