What is Normal?


Normally, I would have been posting a few times a week.

But this last month has been a whirlwind. I won’t bore you with the details, so here is the short version: getting ready for family vacation, family vacation, recovering from family vacation, kid with a broken leg.


Normally, I would have planted my tomatoes, beans, and other summer crop by now.

But Spring has been very stubborn this year. Last year, gardeners were discussing how spring had come so early. This year, Spring has been playing Hide and Seek with us all. Today’s high was 49.


These days,  I don’t know what normal is anymore.

  1. I am with you. It has been a really cold (for Mobile) spring, and all my plants are struggling to grow. Everything is still really small, though it was planted when it was supposed to be.
