But regardless of what March brings, I am always planting onions by the end of April.
I'd rather have the clean, sparkly snow for a little longer than have an extended time of bare ground before it's warm enough to garden. The snow cover protects the perennials and keeps the fruit trees from budding too soon. The farmers will be happy with the moisture that all this snow will leave in their fields. If they get decent drying weather in June, the hay crop should be excellent.
