Today is March 25. Three months ago many of us were most likely picking up wrapping paper and celebrating that big holiday that kids of all ages look forward to.
Today is the fifth day of spring. The sun is shinning (here in NJ) and most of the snow has melted (although there are still piles in my backyard), and April is right around the corner. It’s hard to really understand how time can go so fast, especially when you’re in the middle of the winter and you’re shoveling out yet another snowstorm (anyone remember February?). But spring is here and with it the promise of new beginnings.
The daffodils are starting to poke out of frozen ground. The birds are singing and the weather is slowly warming up on the East Coast, yet burning up on the West Coast. How will you spend your spring this year? Any plans to start or expand a garden? Will you work on your New Year’s resolution to get more exercise and go for walks as the days lengthen and the weather improves?
Spring is always a busy time for us here at the Farmers’ Almanac. Not only are we getting ready for gardening season, but the next year’s edition of the Farmers’ Almanac is being finalized. The 2016 will be our 199th edition and I’m excited about how this next edition is coming together.
Welcome to spring Farmers’ Almanac friends. Hope that this season of rebirth finds you in good health, happy spirits, and fun times.
