Your kitchen garden should be abundant. Yay! The only things that I've ordered for spring planting are 2 trees ordered last fall (redbud and cherry) and 3 milkweed plants. In another week, I'll run up to Hillside Nursery to buy my gamble kitchen garden plants.

You make it sound a bit cool, up there. We had gusts into the 60s the other day; but, we are mostly gusting 10-40 mph. It was breezy for my walk, just now (48F when I left the house & 15 mph I'm guessing); but, that was good. For once, I didn't even come close to overheating during my walk - only after I came inside. I nearly wore a light-weight vest over my elbow-length-sleeves knit shirt and knit crop pants; but, fortunately, I decided against it.

Don't rat me out to the youngsters - that I failed to mention their cuteness, right up front. As always, they are darling and you got great photos. Snuggle 'em for me.

Winds are still active, if only in the 10-20 MPH range most of the time. Friday night they started howling again with 30+ MPH sustained winds. I don't think we reached the 60MPH gusts but it still woke me up several times.

You may not recall; but, during the first week that we spent (in an apartment) in Seattle, the newspaper carried huge, front-page headlines about the "big blow". People had been awakened in the night by the 40 mph wind. Being from Kansas, we had slept right through it.

You must have been the recipient of the howling winds that we experienced on Tuesday - same magnitudes. They didn't wake me, but I lay in bed listening to them. (Being in the basement is an advantage for me.)

When the winds get up speed, the bay windows in front of the house create enough disturbance that it creates a whistling sound and that is what wakes me. Those winds Friday night were not enough to get the house to shaking though, thus my reasoning that gusts didn't hit the 60MPH from previously.

BTW - it's cute that you think Kansas wind has much of an impact on NH :). Most of our high winds come from cold fronts moving down from Canada (that was what Friday night's wind was about), or Nor'Easters coming up the coast. Although there are times the jet stream will bring bits of your weather to us, your weather from mid last week went well south of us.

That's what I always aim for: cute!
