A friend of mine is flying and feeling the effects of your storm right now. I had no idea it was supposed to be that bad! We are right now forecast for 1 inch of snow, so with your Spring Snow Math, seems like I'll be getting about 4 feet.
Ah well, this time of year it melts fast.
Anyone else starting seeds? I have to start my tomatoes this weekend but I got my peppers started and some early cold stuff (bulb onions, cabbages, celery). Do you do anything special to start them? What do you use as a mix? I use a (patent pending) combo of organic Jiffy starter, peat moss, vermiculite and lobster compost. Lobster compost is something I have only seen up here, but it's compost made with the shells of lobster from our processing plants. My plants love it. I have a seed starting area with grow lights on a timer and heat mats and a fan. It works pretty well. Once it gets warmer I have a cold frame outside to transfer them to.
