The recent snow fall haven’t had much impact on current drought conditions. Along the Front Range, we’re below normal for the year to date precipitation. We ended last year almost five inches below normal. The recent snows have added a little, helpful moisture.
Even though we need the moisture, the recent cold snap and snow fall may have many of us looking forward to Spring. It’s time we went to the Nursery for seeds. We may have to wait in line to get to the seed racks because folks are getting Spring fever.
The Basalt Public Library is trying something new this spring: a seed collection. With a library card in hand, you can check the seeds out, grow the plants, and within nine months, harvest the new seeds and bring them back.
