Lots of people “think green” on St. Patrick’s Day. Being only a tiny bit Irish by marriage, I tend to equate green with gardening. Today is the day to plant spring’s crop of green peas in the region where I live. Green shoots of hyacinths and daffodils are making a welcome appearance as they poke through the gray mud of winter. Very healthy-looking green weeds are also making their presence known.
Spring gardening reminds me of all the energy-saving projects I can still complete while waiting for warmer weather and longer days outside.
