Diagram Table B 

No diagram this month but I offer this photograph of the garden as it is currentlyNote the concrete that needs to be replaced at the front bottom; the rain line is now clearly seen on the right side of the bed, and although not intentional, the darker region in the upper right of the garden is the general area where the critter burrow is below the surface.

March 2016 First Edition

PDF Companion Reference Files for this Edition 

Database Table B
Only has last years records.  No change from last month as nothing has spiked yet.  
Dated: 3/1/16
Diagram Table B
Shows the current coverage of snow and ice over the garden at this time of year (the blue over the garden).  Dated:
Thursday, February  25 at 2:00 PM.

This month I was compelled to add an AM/PM indicator to my diagrams as the morning had one condition it was nearly free of snow, and by noon it was snowed over again!  The diagrams has these in light blue, and black.  The light blue indicates that it reflects that time. If no indicator is given presume that it was observed at about 5 PM.

Ya Know, Its Still Preseason Here in Minnesota.
So in This Issue I am Going to Look at Anticipated Changes.
