Snow comes and goes

The snow came quickly and is leaving just as it came. The temps were well above freezing here today and most of out snow melted off. In most places you can see the ground where the sun could hit. Most of our road is shaded so that is a whole different animal. But February will be here tomorrow and my dad always said it thaws a little bit every day in February. So I am gonna believe we are on the slide into an early spring. We may have a few more days of snow but it never lasts long this time of year.
Only 2 weeks till pea planting time and I am thinking they will be planted in the mud. We always planted peas on valentines day here and when we do we always have good peas. Even if the ground is wet in the garden the seed will be fine and not rot because there is a lot of sand and it does drain well. That is with normal rainfall, not like we had last year. The ground was so saturated the water had no where to go, so it just sat there. And lack of sunshine along with rain, the gardens did no good. But with lots of canned stuff from the season before we are fine in that area. Just hope we are blessed with a better garden this year. Not much else on my mind tonight, so till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.
