    The Return

    NITROGEN FROM SKY
    NOAA Note
    we're pleased
    WALLPAPER:  BIT OF NITROGEN
    -------
    .. Seldom mentioned is that snow brings more captive nitrogen to the ground than does rain or any other form of precipitation.
    .. The last couple of warm weeks have removed snow from the dark masses in town: house roofs, streets, exposed car roofs, and south facing raised bed gardens.
    GREEN WONDER
    .. We're anticipating the planting of the early spring crops.
    .. The forecast late snow storm for the next couple of days will give us the shot of nitrogen that early crops enjoy.
    .. Fishing will be good - catching should be great.
