A beautiful weekend , so nice and warm even with snow still on the ground. Hubby wanted to have a snow ball fight so I had to obliged him, these things help with cabin fever and spring fever too. You ever see two ol folks in a snowball fight? Its rather funny esp when we couldn't even hit each other, we were more catching each others snowballs instead of blasting each other.
Heres a pic of garden still with snow, those are my rustic poles made into tepees for the pole beans

Old Camp news,
A few Plant Camps back I shared about a poinsettia I have had for two season now. It lasted the past two Christmases so I planted it last spring in the garden and brought it in before frost last fall. It grew slowly and around this last Christmas I seen a little red. Well here it is, not a perfect show but its growing and sense its St Valentines Day today I thought we needed a little red. So A Happy Valentines day to ya and if you still got a poinsettia still growing and its leaves are still hanging on, plant it in your garden, it will add some pretty green foliage , just remember to bring in this fall.
Heres a link to the poinsettia , experiment. http://compostpyle.blogspot.com/2010/07/plant-camp-mondays_18.html
