Spring is here. The signs are everywhere. Amid some cooler days and nights, the sap began to run in the maple trees. Then trees began to bud and break into leaf, and the bulbs have sent up stems and burst into bloom. Somewhere in there the robins reappeared. In time, the earth will warm further and other plants will show their buds and flowers.

Farmers will be out on the land as it dries, to plough or cultivate the earth and get it ready for the next season's crops. And I suspect that other gardeners, like myself, are already thinking about their gardens. And those who are thinking about growing herbs and vegetables for the first time are already contemplating what comes next.
