Has spring sprung yet?

It's been so cold, it's been hard to think about planting. It seems that when it's as cold as it has been, the seeds don't germinate well anyway. I've learned that you just can't rush growth. However, the parsley and onions are coming up from last year. We still haven't planted Swiss chard.
 The weather forecast for the next 10 days, calls for lows in the 40's and the highs are pushing 60, with rain throughout the week.

Ken gathered worms off our gravel driveway the other morning after the saturating rain. Unfortunately, he didn't put them in the worm farm, he took them fishing.
I am saving coffee grounds for the worm farm, everyday in a container, it's amazing how fast they accumulate.  Pretty soon, it will be warm enough to start a worm farm outside.

Here's the worm composting link again. I made a previous post with basic instructions.
