Well, some of our 3 inch snow melted, but now it's snowing again.  When the
ground was all white day before yesterday, the pair of mallards who usually
hang around for free lunches around nesting time came back to Chez
Lauterbach to dine.  Everything else was covered, but here's wheat, cracked
corn, milo and stuff like that.  Big excitement on the part of the big
people.  Is that a sign of spring?  Can't be.  Garden is mushy muck, wasn't
tilled before pro football season started, and I'm hoping I have enough
leaves to do a Ruth Stout no-till garden this year.  I usually plant on St.
Patrick's Day.  Should have planted shallots last fall.  At least my chile
seeds are germinating.  Hurray for them!  Margaret L
