When the Trout Lilies Bloom



On Thursday after getting home from work, I went out back to check on the trout lilies; they had begun to bloom. So, the rest of Thursday went toward planting peas and transplanting out the baby lettuces, spinach, chicory, etc that I had started under lights indoors.

It will be a week or more before I see the peas pushing up through the dirt, but the little plants are safely (I hope!) tucked into the new cold frame. They had a couple of days of relative warmth and amazing rain--we've had 3 inches in the last 48 hours--to get settled in before some colder weather returned.

Right now, the temperature is dropping. It is still above freezing, just barely, and big wet flakes of snow are falling.
