Where Is Spring?

Let me just say I'm not complaining about the weather.  Not even about the 1-3 inches of snow we're supposed to get.  I live in Michigan.  1-3 inches is nothing to me.  However my lack of patience is showing today.  I'm working on my plans for my herb garden and I'm feeling a bit anxious to plant seeds.  I'm also feeling a bit anxious to go shopping at the nursery.  This year I'm buying as many Lemon Verbena plants as I can.  And I won't care if the clerk comments on me taking all that they have (like she did last year).  I mean, you are in business to sell right?  I have plans for green beans, tomatoes, lettuce, peppers, strawberries.  Rosemary, basil, dill, chamomile, catnip, mint, mint, and more mint! Sage and so much more, including several flowers.

OK, I'm going to stop.  This is just feeding into my impatience lol.

OMG! I am also planning my sowing and am frustrated with our on and off weather. I have a bunch of Yankee Candle votive plastic trays that I'm going to use for winter sowing. I read that you can plant the seeds in a completely enclosed "terrarium" and leave it outside. The seeds will stay dormant until the weather's right, then when you have 4 leaves, open the top a couple of hours a day. Then you don't have to worry about hardening your plants before putting them in the ground!

I've got lots of herbs growing on a heat mat in my kitchen, getting ready for Spring. I'm so tired of winter!!
