Spring officially arrived yesterday March 27 here in New York's North Country:
Clare & Carl's opened for the season.
To elaborate just a bit:
I have been to Clare's many times during March and April when it had been necsassary to plow the parking lot !
Insofar as the "actual" arrival of spring, perhaps Flag Day (June 14th) would be more accurate, climate-wise at least.
Except for onions sets and maybe peas, it isn't safe to plant much out doors before the aforementioned Memorial Day.
And just to set the record straight for all of you "from away": Our part of the North Country is adjacent to Lake Champlain. And there isn't much danger of a heat wave yet as the temperature of the lake water has been pretty steady at 36 deg. F for the past 7 days.
In spite of it all though, Clare's is open.
