Seed Order 'cause Spring is in the Air

My Pinetree Garden Seed order came this week. This year I'm trying Purple Sprouting Broccoli, Crimson Forest Bunching Onion, Crosby Egyptian Beet, Mokum Carrot, Dinosaur Kale, Pinetree Lettuce Mix, Suhyo Cucumber, Earthwalker Sunflower, North American Wildflower Mix, and Masai Green Bush Bean. I already visited the garden and threw in some of the broccoli and onion seed. We've been having such a mild winter that I probably would already be enjoying homegrown veggies if I would have sown them in the fall. Instead I am ammended the soil with compost and now the dirt is a really wonderful, loamy, rich soil that has my expectations running high for this upcoming season.

See? It must be spring. The trees are flowering.

Spring? Is that you?

What a confusing winter we've been having. Today it's snowing and last week I saw these crocus blooming.
