But I still get my reminder e-mails of what to plant each week from My Square Foot Garden, and though that gardening itch was miniscule, it was still there.  When the sun burst out on Friday, we just had to head to the garden.
Once there, we discovered that our peas (photo above) had, in fact, survived,

We spent a glorious hour and a half in the warm sunshine, and I managed to plant two rows of spinach and start several pots worth of tomato seeds.  Not even close to what I might usually attempt to accomplish, but it felt just right.
