When the inversion makes me cranky

By Penny Stine

My garden is covered in snow, it's dark when I get home from work and all of my produce is coming from the freezer rather than the front yard. On top of that, our heater/hot water boiler decided it didn't want to work anymore, so we have no heat other than the gas fireplace and no hot water except for what I heat in my canning kettle. 

Grrr. It's enough to make anyone cranky. 

So I wandered over to my planter box and took another photo of my ever-so-slowly growing cucumbers. 

Who knows when or if the HVAC guy will be able to fix the boiler (I'm not holding out much hope), but at least I have a little tiny cucumber that's half an inch long growing right in my living room. It reminds me that winter won't last forever and someday, I will be warm again.
