Originally, I thought the garden was sprouting too early, or at least earlier than usual. After checking last year’s garden log, I find the same plants showing up around the same time. (This is why we keep notes.)
Some of these showed up in the Virginia garden the first week of February.
This just makes a gardener’s sap flow. I haven’t seen any crocus yet, and I can hardly wait to see what March brings.
