I mentioned ordering more tomato seeds. I am trying Park’s Whopper. I received seeds from Park in about 5 days. It has been over a week now, and I haven’t received what I ordered from Burpee. From the looks of things, I won’t get those Walls o’ Water out anytime soon. We’ve 8-10″ more of snow, and though it is going to be up in the 40’s this week that 3 feet out there isn’t going to melt away very soon. I had hoped to get the tomatoes going sooner so I could get them out really early. Need some more seed planting medium, too.
By the way, I’m going to try growing strawberries in growing bags. Think I’ll hang them on a shepherd’s crook in my flower garden.

One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.
