The wind was howling and I could hear the snow hitting the side of the house when I woke up this morning. Ughh! I knew it was coming but it didn't help me feel any better. I snuggled up under my comforter and ignored the alarm/radio as it told me of freeway accidents and high winds. Just then my sweetie came in and gave me a warm goodbye kiss. I immediately felt guilty that I get to stay in bed every day while he goes out into
Last Saturday when the temperatures were a lovely 76 degrees the men in the house, Dee Michael, & Richard went out to turn the soil and put in some cold weather plants namely, peas and onions. The onions were little sprouts that Michael carefully put in the ground. They have reveled in the sunshine until yesterday when a spring storm system moved into the Rockies. After a discussion at dinner last night the men went out again and built a structure to shelter the little onions from the frost and wind. It was quite ingenious, made of tomato support frames, 2x4 wall studs, tent stakes,and plastic tarp. I stayed in the warm house, did the dinner dishes and thought about my dear husband. He loves his garden with a passion and frets over every little plant. I saw a parallel between how he was working in the cold and wind to shelter the fragile green shoots and how he goes out into the dark and cold every morning to work to put a snug shelter over his family...who he loves more than his onions!
I love you sweetheart! I can't wait for this summer's fresh salsa!!
