The other day I looked over my last year's planting records and saw that I'd started some early potatoes in my garage planters on March 8. They did very well and I thought, "I think I'll try planting them a week or two earlier this year. The next morning I woke up to snow. It snowed all that day, the next day and the next and finally that evening the power went out. As I sat in the growing dark and cold with Jasmine snuggied up beside me I felt pleased to have a laptop with a full battery and a great audiobook loaded on (one of Penny Louise's wonderful Inspector Armand Gamache books).
I did a dyebath with weld and was delighted with wool the colour of summer sunshine.
