On February 2, 2010 Punxsutawney Phil the groundhog from England, came out of his burrow on Gobbler’s Knob and saw his own shadow and predicted 6 more weeks of winter.
Behind Phil’s back, his little brother, Bobbi a radical left wing groundhog, one of the original Chicago weathermen group, currently living in Ireland, forecasted 8 more weeks of winter! Bobbi who has long been jealous of his older brother’s notoriety is currently planning a coup on Gobbler’s Hill. Stay tuned for more updates next year!
Yes the snow is back again and I am spending too much time inside and not in the garden! The forecast is for more snow today and on Saturday. Meanwhile I am busy inside planting seeds and transplanting my tomatoes, peppers and eggplants. Starting to run out of space under the lightbox so some will go out by the windows soon. Just read that we are up 137% for water precipitation for the year so far compared to last year. Should be a great spring for wildflowers!
Sorry for this but I got to have a little fun while waiting to get in the garden!
