Greenhouse Starts Growing Rapidly in the Spring Sunshine

This has become an April to remember after a winter we will never forget.  April is one of my favorite months of the year in south central Alaska, because the change from beginning to end, from day to day, is almost overwhelming. 

The lack of moisture this month has made breakup here surprisingly moderate.  Giant towers and walls of blown, hardened, darkened snow are melting so fast you can hear them do it.

The sun and daytime heat have gotten my greenhouse off to its best start ever.   Over-ripe arugula:
