Reblog – First Day of Spring

I was going to write about the first day of spring and what you might do but got a little busy.  On the other hand, a fellow WordPress blogger Brandie had a short but sweet few paragraphs so I went with it and reblogged below.

Today is the first day of spring and a Vernal Equinox! Finally longer days and warmer nights!
So what is an equinox? The day of the equinox, the center of the Sun spends  just about the same amount of time above and below the horizon, so basically night and day are just about the same length.

It is a perfect time to get your seeds going. You can easily start your seedlings in a window sill. I like to reuse items, so I used tin cans. A punch makes it easy to make labels for your seeds.


After about  few weeks they will start to sprout and ready to move.

Happy Gardening! Have a wonderful first day of spring!

Do you have plans to start a garden?


Remember, if you need planting containers, we have recrafted one-of-a-kind half wine barrels on sale this March – (see special here).
