Earlier this week it snowed again:
We got a bit more snow than the last time. But it was still wet snow. Snow kept falling until early afternoon but it stopped sticking earlier than that and was melting faster than it came down. Then it turned to rain. All of the snow is gone now.
It snowed Saturday night. We didn’t get much. The next morning it was still snowing/mixed with rain at some points. I took a picture of the field across the street while it was snowing:

It wasn’t much snow and it was wet but that’s still more snow then we had last year. It’s all gone now. It had melted by yesterday afternoon.
The forecast for tomorrow evening is talking about snow! We’ll see if it happens or not. It’s also supposed to rain soon after but we didn’t get any snow last year.
I think we’re going to scale our porch garden to five EarthBoxes initially. We’re not sure how much sunlight they’ll get so we’ll start with a smaller number and then add more if we want to expand.
Yesterday I mapped out our little porch. It’s only ~11’x6′ space. I figured we could fit ten EarthBoxes into the space out there and still have a walkway out the slider. I think we’ll be planning for the spring. If we can figure out what we want to grow then in the spring we’ll order the boxes, seed, etc. and get started. We can’t do a whole lot in the space available but we can do some work. Plus the EarthBoxes will be something we can use for a long time.
The only thing that I grew this year was some basil in a container. It didn’t do all that well. This next spring I want to try an EarthBox and grow multiple herbs. Hopefully it’ll work better. Even so the last of the basil was good. I used it with last night with some homemade spaghetti.
