If any of my blog followers want to play along with me I am quite interested in knowing when various measures of spring arrive at your house. My dates for Lynnville, TN are in parentheses.
On what date did you notice the first forsythia blooming ? (Feb 2)
How about the first lilac in bloom ? (Mar 3)
How about Daffodils ? (Feb 2)
When did you first mow your grass ? (Mar 1) How long was it at that time ? (cool season 6-12")
How about last frost ?
For the farmers in the audience, when did you start hauling manure (Feb 29)? Seeding small grains or pasture (Mar 2) ? Planting field corn (don't do this any more but noticed corn planters rolling Mar 21)?
If enough of you play along (and feel comfortable sharing your approximate location...southern Vermont, eastern Ontario, Toronto, Ottawa, etc.) this could be fun. Feel free to share any other spring-type information too !
