Spring is Coming, Eventually

I received the first of the spring 2009 seed catalogs in the mail today. Either spring is closer than I think or these companies have no clue about our north country winters. Up here we won't even see bare ground till sometime in late April and we can't plant till well into June. Just to let you know how far north "up here" is, there's a sign about 15 minutes north that identifies the 45th parallel. That's the halfway point between the equator and the north pole. So for now I'll just dream of spring. Perhaps they're just anxious to let me know they have items for me when, in the distant future, I might be ready to even think about planting.
