Rough Start to an April Day

The weather scene looked pretty grim this morning in the Bella Coola Valley, with heavy rain showers and the snow level down to the 1500 foot level, it didn't seem to hold much promise for a great day.  It was going to be a yard, garden and building day, but those plans were altered a bit.  Fortunately after lunch it started to improve and dried up, even producing a couple sunny spots and some good views of all the fresh snow on the mountains.

In the garden the weeds are coming fine already, but I hadn't looked at the Rhubarb for a week or two and it's at the stage where we can actually eat some already.  Because we didn't have a severe winter and  when we had the cold weather, the ground was under a foot or more of snow in my area, I'd taken a chance on leaving some parsnips to over winter.  The gamble paid off because they did not freeze and we enjoyed some of those fresh from the garden today - over 12" long and beautiful white roots.  Grizzly
