February in Indiana

      Hopefully with the last snowstorm behind us, I would like to give you an insight through my roving reporter’s eyes this past week.

Registration is now being taken for men’s and women’s softball teams for the spring/summer leagues.  Wonder if they might have to clear home plate of any snow?

Did you happen to see the early morning traffic as they maneuvered around the rabbit that was sitting in the middle of Smith Valley Road?  Speaking of rabbits, we’ve had a rabbit that has been hanging around our mini barn on a regular basis.  I hope he doesn’t get any funny ideas on becoming a house guest.  Once I get my garden with red tomatoes….let me be the one to pick them.   

More than one red bird is feeding in our bird feeders now along with several robins, which is always a good sign that warm weather can’t be far off. 

The daffodils that grow along the front of my house have put forth blooms and my tulips lived through the winter, though they seem to have suffered a bit of wilting in that brief snow we had a week ago. 

Yesterday my sister brought me a Mosquito plant, so that I might be rid of the pesky little critters.  The easy-to-grow Mosquito plant emits a fragrance that keeps mosquitoes away!  The only catch is you must rub or crush leaves to release the scent.  I’m hoping to plant it along side of the garage and convince my husband to crush a few leaves each time he comes home.

Remember if you do not like Indiana weather; give it a day or two.  Within days of the last snow this month, we actually opened up a few windows in the house mid-afternoon to enjoy the fresh air.   

Then it snowed the next day.

    You mentioned your tomatoes. My last plant has gone crazy. It’s droopy because the stems are so long. I planned on cutting it down and getting rid of it but it ripened 2 tomatoes each day. I went away for 5 days and when I came home there were 20+ red tomatoes. It was supposed to be a beefsteak tomato plant but the ripe tomatoes are not much bigger than tangerines. Crazy California weather and a very confused tomato plant.
