Green Thumb Sunday: Snow tracks

The Emergency Email Network keeps sending me this little gem of a forecast summary:

ARCTIC AIR WILL REMAIN ACROSS THE REGION THROUGH AT LEAST TUESDAY. AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF COLD WEATHER OF THIS MAGNITUDE HAS NOT BEEN SEEN ACROSS THE REGION FOR SEVERAL YEARS.

In other words, don’t expect any snow to melt any time soon. Maybe I should start participating in White Thumb Sunday, instead.

    I wish we had snow here in England…I’m so dissapointed!

    True, from a gardening point of view it’s nice early news; my chives are showing through the soil, my oregano and marjoram are still usable…

    But I want snow, damnit!

    Makes our little 1/2″ this week look even more pathetic lol!

    We had snow last Thursday. Right after I cleaned out the basil beds and found my crocuses blooming. It only lasted for a day and everything kind of hibernated but lived through it.
    My chives are growing, too….but the snow is pretty!

    Scott, how much snow do you usually get there? I always think of England as being very damp and cold, but not all that snowy in the winter. I was always disappointed in Germany when I lived there because it didn’t snow nearly as much as I expected.

    Deb, this photo reflects a couple of different rounds of snow — it’s just that we have not gotten above freezing for awhile, so it’s all piling up and not going anywhere!

    Katie, ooh…I’d love to have fresh chives. Congrats on the blooming crocuses…lovely!

    It looks pretty darn snowy and not too gardeny there. Ick. Snow. Snow. Bad.

    It is freezing here and I think my poor little mini rose is going to die outside.

    maybe not a white thumb, but certainly a frozen one!

    I know! I’ve never seen anything like it. It should be melting and muddy about now… not below zero! I wish it would go away.
