Lots of Rocky Mountain Maybe!

Good Morning! Here's the 'maybe' part of a Rocky Mountain spring.
What's a gardener to do?
The recycled plastic growing beds today experience their first Montana spring. They probably want to go home, right?
Ah, yes, but take a look at who's sticking around...Mr. Red Wing.

When it gets tough, the tough get going, to plant seeds, that is! The first tray of seedlings are basking indoors near the heater. These heirloom seeds hark from the steppes of Russia. They know what it's like to sprout in an uncertain climate. They won't have to worry about freezing temps for a month or so. When the time comes to move outside, Walls-o-Water to the rescue are the way to assure a tomato crop in July, Rocky Mountain spring or maybe!

It's still snowing...
