Morning in the snow

We're supposed to get pretty warm today, with a predicted high of 2C/36F, and a combination of rain and snow.

Even a single yellow bean. 😀 If the mild temperatures continue, we will be getting more yellow beans, too. There are new beans growing, all over the row! From what I … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: morning in the garden, and first lettuce!
