Ah, yes, Spring is defintely getting closer even though there's still 8 inches of snow remaining on the ground. Proof? I took a  look inside our cold frames and found last year's crop sprouting afresh.

Even the spinach seeds, which I planted too late in the fall to harvest, survived and are now growing.

I was Skyping with one of my friends who has recently retreated to Florida for a couple of weeks and he said the temperature down there was likely to hit 85 degrees today - much too hot to grow spinach and lettuce. That's why we live in Maine!!!
