It's the Ides of February.
Transfiguration and Valentine's today.
Mardi Gras, Shrove Tuesday, and My Father's Birthday on Tuesday.
At least 12 in of snow on the ground and more in the air.
Frost on the bean trellis made me wishful for spring.
So I visited the Seed Savers Exchange (online, that is) and got busy dreaming:
Purple Beans for the Trellis
These never actually make it into the house because the kids eat them all.
Purple Peas, because I love peas, and I love purple
Winged Asparagus Peas, because they look like fun!
And Candy-Striped Beets! YUM!
The Science Officer loves beets!
