Canal creates rivalry

Mar 1 - Mar 14, 2019

From your editor: I have received several requests for a reprint of the 1968 publication “A History of Broad Ripple” by The Junior Historical Society and The Riparian Newspaper, both of Broad Ripple High School. We haven’t published this information since 2004 and many new residents are now in Broad Ripple and have never read it. Where we come from is important. It has some errors. I will try to correct them as they appear. I will attempt to reprint the entire booklet. I will include each section as space permits. -AH

Work on the Central Canal from 1836 to 1839 brought many people into the Broad Ripple-Wellington area, and as a result, business began to develop and grow. In 1843, John Burke, the canal contractor, built a saw mill just below the Broad Ripple feeder dam (this dam feeds the water to the new canal -AH). Two years later, Peter W. Koontz became his partner, and the two men operated the saw mill and also built a grist mill. As early as 1836, Robert Earl opened a variety store in Broad Ripple. He later sold the store to Zachariah Collins in the 1840’s. From that time on the store changed ownership many times. It was finally purchased by Joseph Wray who also built a dwelling, a grocery store, and a saloon on the west side of the dam. In Wellington, the dry goods business was started when William Switzer opened a store in 1839. The business was later sold to Reed Hardin, and then to Gordon C. Johnson, who in turn sold it to Swartz Mustard. Competition arose when Jackson Dawson opened the second dry goods store. Intense rivalry developed between the villages of Broad Ripple and Wellington over the control of the Central Canal and the domination of the canal area. Settlers in Wellington, on the south side of the canal, thought of Broad Ripple, on the north side, as a meeting place of crude and common people. For even before the canal was completed in 1839, the Broad Ripple saloon was often crowded with canal workers. Broad Ripple citizens, in turn, regarded Wellington as “Hell’s Half Acre”. Perhaps the best example of the rivalry involved what is now the Broad Ripple Post Office. The office was opened in 1850, with William Earl as the first postmaster. Because of political whims, the post office was moved shortly thereafter to Wellington, but not permanently, for it was soon moved back to Ripple. Then, for several years it switched locations from Broad Ripple to Wellington and back again. Finally, in 1884, the Post Office Department settled the matter by locating the post office in Wellington, but retaining the name of Broad Ripple. After that, Wellington gradually lost its identity, and the two villages eventually became one. Physicians have played an important part in the life of both settlements. Broad Ripple’s first physician was Dr. Harvey Kerr, who practiced from 18511880. Dr. Robert C. Light practiced from 1884 until the turn of the century. The first physician in Wellington was Dr. Joseph Alter. He was succeeded by Dr. Horatio Johnson and later by Dr. Edward Collins. Doctors were often called upon to make visits across the canal, and in so doing, had to hold lanterns for their horses to find their way. Once a doctor had to swim across the canal to get medicine for a young patient.

Many turned out for the latest Red Line information meeting at the IAC.

IndyGo Red Line update meeting at IAC By Alan Hague

alan@broadripplegazette.com It was standing room only at the February 19 public meeting for the IndyGo Red Line update meeting held at the Indianapolis Art Center. Bryan Luellen, Vice President of Public Affairs at IndyGo, ran the meeting. As a background, the Red Line is the first phase (later to include the Purple and Blue Lines, and neighboring county Red Lines) of an IndyGo transit improvement system that uses a dedicated bus lane and elevated stations to provide for reliable, 10 minute departures. Bryan gave a brief overview of Phase One of the Red Line project, “Construction began in June of last year, and the corridors under construction are Shelby, Virginia, Capital, Maryland, 18th, 38th, and College. It’s 13.5 miles from Broad Ripple through downtown to the University of Indianapolis. “There are 28 station locations, buses come every 10 minutes for 20 hours a day. The vehicles operating will be 60-foot electric buses. Projected ridership is 11,000 trips per day. Stations are elevated. Buses operate at grade, on the street level. There will be ticket vending machines, real-time arrivals, all of the stations are ADA accessible. “Each of the transit signals at the intersections will have communication with the bus to give a little priority to the vehicle, which help speed the service. The travel time from 66th Street to downtown will be about 20 to 25 minutes which is competitive with driving.” Bryan explained that at the last IndyGo board meeting, the accelerated construction plan for College Avenue was authorized, which has brought more work crews to the whole corridor to reduce the construction schedule by four months. The acceleration agreement was finalized in January, with final approval by the board of directors in February. IndyGo announced the traffic impacts of the accelerated plan on February 5th. Acceleration began on the 11th. The goal of this plan is to have the Red Line operating by late summer. Bryan explained the scope of the construction, “On College Avenue there will be seven transit stations that will be under construction. Improvements are beyond the transit stations and include new sidewalks, curb cuts, drainage which is critical

Post office

The Broad Ripple Post Office caused rivalry between Broad Ripple and Wellington. The office was finally established in Wellington, but it retained the name of Broad Ripple. In this picture, the Broad Ripple Post Office staff lines up beside one of the rural route delivery wagons in front of the post office in 1914. The men (left to right) are D.Gilpin, S. King, J. Lankford, J. Hoover, F. Eaton, F. Pollard, and C. Cloe.


This completes Chapter 3 of the booklet. Chapter 4 will appear in a future issue.

Station locations on College Avenue will be at 66th Street, Broad Ripple Avenue, Kessler Boulevard, 54th, 52nd, 46th, and 42nd Streets. Trenching along the edges to hold the storm water infrastructure as well as some of the work on the pedestrian connections. “Right now the crews are working mainly from 50th to 66th, at the station areas. In March, their work will continue south and spread from 50th to 38th Street. Part of the acceleration plan does include a six-day work week. Work will occur occasionally on Sunday. There will be night time paving operations to minimize traffic interruptions. For safety, speed limits in the work zones is 25 MPH. “The duration of these pieces of the work, sidewalks, drainage, utilities, curb modifications are going to last through April. Station work will happen through June. Pavement resurfacing will fall after the stations are complete in June and July and full completion is scheduled before Labor Day. “On-street parking will be permitted in all areas except where active construction is happening. You can park next to construction barrels, you just can’t park inside the construction barrels. Some temporary turn restrictions may be necessary as the work progresses. One lane of traffic will be open in each direction except for 2 to 4 hour periods periodically when the more intense work of setting the station roof on and pouring the concrete. “For residents, we always know that trash is a question. You will place your trash in the normal place that you do, if your trash barrel is inside of a construction zone, then our work crews will move it to a place where it can be removed. Driveways, by and large, access will be maintained. There will be some locations where driveways will be disrupted. If your driveway access will be disrupted, you will get direct communication from the contractor. “Again, parking will be permitted except inside of the construction zones. In those areas the contractors will install no parking signs. If you do park near a construction zone and plan to leave it there for any period of time, we ask that you leave your phone number on the dash so that if they do need to move the construction zone.” Following this informational portion of the meeting, the floor was opened to questions from the attendees. It was clear that there was a lot of anger in

the crowd. There were many frustrated comments from business owners and residents about the project and how it is impacting them. There was a lengthy discussion about the Red Line safety plan. Many elderly attendees expressed concern because this plan had not yet been made public. Those residents were questioning how an EMS vehicle will be able to get to their homes quickly to respond to a heart attack, for example, after the traffic congestion rises due to the loss of a driving lane on College Avenue. The plan describes how all forms of emergency vehicles can gain access to homes and businesses along College Avenue as needed during events such as fire, medical emergency, crime, etc. IndyGo agreed at the meeting to put this safety plan on the website. IndyGo is implementing a new fare system this summer. It uses a tap card that can be reloaded at vending machines. The tap card will allow for free 2-hour transfers. It will also contain ID and reduced fare eligibility information for the rider. The fare cards will be available at no charge for a start-up period. Full fare will be $1.75. The tap cards allow the rider to accumulate fares used so the system can cap fare charges to $4 daily and $15.75 weekly, allowing for rider savings.

Board Of Public Works Will Vote On A New District To Fund Flood Protection For Properties In Rocky Ripple

The Indianapolis Board of Public Works (BPW) will vote on whether to recommend the creation of a Flood Control Improvement District (District) including many special flood hazard properties in the Rocky Ripple area of Indianapolis. While not a new tax, any positive change in property tax revenue assessed from properties included in this proposed White River -- Rocky Ripple Flood Control Improvement District would be directed specifically to fund the construction or maintenance of infrastructure to reduce the risk of damage due to flooding. “Similar to a Tax Increment Financing (TIF) district, establishing this proposed District would keep any new revenue close to home,” said Dan Parker, Chairman of the Board of Public Works and Director of the Indianapolis Department of Public Works (DPW). “Floodplain properties included in the White River -- Rocky Ripple Flood Control Improvement District would see a portion of their property tax assessment directed right back into projects that address their flooding issues.” All owners of property included in the proposed White River -- Rocky Ripple Flood Control Improvement District (approximately 554 parcels) have been notified of the BPW vote on whether to recommend the District. A map of properties recommended for inclusion in the proposed White River -- Rocky Ripple Flood Control Improvement District is at https://bit.ly/2XqYDxt. A general information page on Flood Control Improvement Districts, including a sample district map is at https://bit.ly/2U8mm3g. Should the BPW vote to recommend the District, its creation will then need to be approved by both the Metropolitan Development Commission (MDC) and the City-County Council. Both of these acting bodies will provide opportunity to present public comment on the process from District property owners. In July 2018, a study prepared by engineering firm AECOM outlined 3 alternatives for constructing a local project. In November 2018, the Board of the Town of Rocky Ripple resolved both to accept Alternative 3 from this study as the preferred alternative for a flood control project, and to support the recommendation of a local Flood Control Improvement District to help fund such a project. The proposed White River -- Rocky Ripple Flood Control Improvement District uses the description of Alternative 3 from the 2018 AECOM study--preferred by the Board of the Town of Rocky Ripple--as the description and location of proposed flood control works to be associated with the District. A full description of the proposed flood works is at https://bit.ly/2ICwTT9.

Central Avenue Traffic Study Initiates Changes In Midtown

The Indianapolis Department of Public Works (DPW) released a traffic study today detailing how construction on the IndyGo Red Line Project along College Avenue will affect Central Avenue, two blocks west of the Red Line corridor. Results from the study initiated a number of temporary speed control measures installed before vehicular traffic volume is expected to increase on Central Avenue due to the nearby construction. The study was initiated in 2017 after neighbors in the area expressed concerns that traffic would increase on Central Avenue and other adjacent streets once IndyGo Red Line construction began on College Avenue. The study focused on Central Avenue, Pennsylvania Street, Washington Boulevard and Meridian Street. After extensive review with neighbors in 2018 and continuing through today, the College Avenue corridor of the IndyGo Red Line, a number of temporary traffic control measures were installed along Central Avenue. Speed tables were installed in the following areas: 4200 Central Avenue, 4400 Central Avenue, 5000 Central Avenue, 5600 Central Avenue, and 5800 Central Avenue. Temporary traffic signals were installed at the following Central Avenue intersections: 42nd St, 49th St, 52nd St, 54th St, 56th St, and 57th St. Four-way stops were converted to 2-way stops, east to west, at these intersections: 40th St and

Central Avenue, and 58th St and Central Avenue After collaboration with neighbors in January 2019, other traffic speed control measures to be installed in coming days include the following: Revising the signs near all current speed humps to include a 15 mph speed advisory, Installing flexible bollards at each speed hump for additional visibility for drivers and bicyclists, Extending the time given to pedestrians at the signalized intersections near the schools to help better accommodate the student crossings, Restricting turns on red light signals at 57th St. and Central Avenue during arrival and dismissal times at the adjacent school. “All the traffic calming measures implemented during the IndyGo Red Line construction will be removed and Central Avenue will return to its original configuration after the Red Line is operational,” said Dan Parker, DPW director. “The original posts for the stop signs that were removed are still in place. The stop signs will be reinstalled.” Due to the acceleration of the IndyGo Red Line construction, DPW expedited activating the temporary traffic signals on February 5, 2019. The traffic study, Central Avenue resurfacing and temporary speed control measures installed are a nearly $3 million investment in the neighborhood. The study also included all other segments of the 13-mile IndyGo Red Line corridor. The traffic study is available online at https://www.indy.gov/activity/major-transportation-projects.

Mistakes Can Be Sweet


We have another winner of the Rene’s Bakery Mistakes Can Be Sweet contest. Cheryl Boarman found a typo in The Broad Ripple Gazette. Cheryl will get a treat (up to $10 value) at Rene’s Bakery located at 6524 Cornell Avenue. You too can enter. Find a mistake in The Gazette and email it to us at contest@ broadripplegazette.com. Rules on page 7, lower left.

I am a life-long resident of the Broad Ripple area. My family has been in Broad Ripple for many generations. Jacob Coil platted and named Broad Ripple in 1837. Two of his daughters married into my family in the 1870s. My grandfather Girstle Hague was a mail carrier at the BR post office and a charter member of the American Legion Post #3. My grandmother Helen Dawson Hague worked at the Broad Ripple National Bank in Mustard Hall that became Fletcher Trust, then AFNB, then Bank One, and now Chase. My great grandparents John E. Hague and Nora Hague lived at 6148 N. College Avenue and 6170 Guilford Avenue. My great grandparents John Dawson and Nora Ringer Dawson lived at 6122 Carrollton Avenue. My 2nd great grandaunt and uncle, Sarah Coil Thompson and Hamlin Thompson, lived at 6116 Guilford Avenue. My uncle Glen Hague worked at TV News and at Hoster-Roberts Ford, which is now Passwater’s and the Old Pro’s Table. My great-grandfather, grandmother, uncle, father, sister and son all graduated from BRHS; I am class of 1978. My son John is BRHS class of 2006, and was Assistant Band Director at BRHS, now band director at Crispus Attucks High School. As a board member of the BRHS Alumni Association, he is an organizer of the BRHS reunions for the classes of the 1940’s through the 1950’s held the first Sunday each June at Riviera Club. For many years, I have wanted a newspaper that answered my questions. Where did that store go? Why were those people digging on the corner? What happens at that business? The Gazette is that paper. You will get an unbiased look into what is happening in Broad Ripple because I have no financial interests in Broad Ripple, nor am I affiliated with any of its organizations. I am simply a resident who is passionate about the area. You will also read about the history of Broad Ripple. This history continues to expand as I uncover new sources of stories and photos. The Gazette’s area of coverage has no real boundaries. Historically, the town of Broad Ripple extended down to 54th Street. The goal of the Gazette is to share with readers stories that are within 10 minutes or so from the heart of Broad Ripple - covering events in the Midtown region. Also, Broad Ripple is one of the seven Cultural Districts recognized by the City of Indianapolis. We try to let you know what is going on in the other districts as we can. One question I often get is how an article gets into the Gazette. We do not accept payment for articles. Article subjects are picked by me for inclusion based on the interest to the residents and visitors to the Broad Ripple area. Since this is a bi-weekly paper, we will not be able to cover news as it happens. Rather, our focus is on issues that are not time sensitive. You will probably never see these stories anywhere else, so getting them a week or so later will be much better than not at all. We try to include a new/recently opened business or longtime business feature article in each issue. I have hundreds of stories planned, but if there is something you want to read about, please let us know. I think you will enjoy the Gazette. I know I enjoy bringing it to you.

Gary Wasson Saturday, March 2 Books & Brews - Broad Ripple 6420 Cornell Ave - all-ages, free, 8 - 10 pm

I realize that when someone plays out often I don’t tend to talk about their shows as much, which is silly, because if musicians have a steady calendar of shows, it’s for one reason. They are good. Really, really good. Gary Wasson is one of those musicians. You might recognize him from his role as a founding member of the roots/bluegrass band Sindicato. Or as the host of several versions of open mic nights over the years he’s currently leading the Wednesday night series at Grand Junction Brewing in Westfield. We should all recognize him as a talented singer and songwriter. Gary has a beautiful voice and a fine selection of original and cover Americana, roots, and folk songs. It is always a special pleasure to hear him perform. You should go.

Broad Ripple Museum From time to time we will display items that have been donated to preserve the history of Broad Ripple. This comb is from Paul’s Barber Shop that was at 52nd and College Avenue from 1961 to 2009. The Gazette did a story on Paul Taylor in Volume 6 Number 20.

I love the quickness of the songs and quirkiness of the lyrics. Yonder Mountain String Band has been playing together for 20 years for good reason they’re terrific. The band hails from Nederland, Colorado - also the home of my favorite merry-go-round. It really is the carousel of happiness. Fireside Collective, a roots/bluegrass band from Ashville, South Carolina, is opening the show.

-Nora Not-for-profit director by day, music writer by night, Nora Spitznogle reviews music that happened and previews music and events around Broad Ripple Village. Nora managed CATH Inc coffeehouse at 54th Street and College Avenue for seven years. During that time she hosted hundreds of local and touring musicians, both at the coffeehouse and her home. When CATH closed in 2004 and the music was no longer coming to her, she had to wander from her corner of Broad Ripple to see what is happening elsewhere. You can find her at Second Helpings during the work day, waitressing at the Red Key on Saturday nights and prowling Broad Ripple music venues the rest of the time.

Plan To Use Broad Ripple Park For Doctor’s Office Gets 3 Bids




olm lc


On February 21 at the Department of Metropolitan Development meeting, IndyParks revealed three bids to build a doctor’s office in Broad Ripple Park in exchange for constructing a new Family Center. The three bidders were BR Health Holdings LLC, Lauth Properties LLC, and Browning Investments. (Community Health Networks was the only bidder in the preliminary bids submitted last year.) Apparently one of the bidders (BR Health Holdings) may include Community Health Network. However, Community would not confirm this, saying only: “Because the project is one driven by IndyParks and the Department of Metropolitan Development, we feel it is inappropriate for us to comment about it at this time.” (per Kris Kirschner, their PR and Media Relations Strategist) Finally, the Marion County Alliance of Neighborhoods (MCANA) has sent a letter to the Mayor and IndyParks opposing the proposal to build a health clinic in Broad Ripple Park. The letter stated: “While a health clinic is certainly a needed and desirable component of a sustainable and healthy community, we do not believe it is appropriate to encroach on public park ground for a private company to construct and operate facilities that further reduce our already insufficient inventory of public park ground and open space. This is particularly true when other appropriate locations are available within a reasonable distance. ...We do not believe that citizens want to see our parks and our neighborhood quality of life become victims of privatization and the usurpation of public land.” To join the movement to stop development in Broad Ripple Park, join the Broad Ripple Park Alliance and Friends of Broad Ripple Pool on Facebook.

Indygo Riders Stranded As Stops Discontinued Without Notice

IndyGo bus riders along College Avenue have found themselves stranded as the bus stops have moved to new temporary stop locations due to Red Line construction—albeit without any type of notice to riders, nor markings at the usual bus stops warning riders the stop is no longer in use. I was waiting for the #18 southbound at 3:50 pm on February 14 at 66th Avenue and College Avenue. When the bus approached my stop, it did not slow to pick me up or wait for me at the next corner. There was no indication that this stop was temporarily closed due to Red Line construction. I walked south on College Avenue only to find new “temporary stops”. On February 19, IndyGo called me and said they do not put bags over the signs or other notices because people remove them. In any event, do not assume your bus stop is in use in Broad Ripple.

New Group Asks Dedicated Bus Lanes On College Avenue Be Removed

A new group, RedLineRealFacts, is calling for not dedicating bus lanes on College Avenue since they claim that it barely reduces travel times to downtown and will also cause traffic snarls. They claim traffic will now cut through on other streets. Further the loss of 30% of the parking on College Avenue will be devastating, according to their fact sheet. They also state that restricting of left turns between 38th and Broad Ripple Avenue will be a problem. Details at www.RedLineRealFacts.org. At the public meeting at the Art Center on February 19 on the Red Line, IndyGo faced a packed house of critics. Finally, the LA Times had an expose on problems with a similar line in Albuquerque which is also using the same company as IndyGo for the electric rapid line buses. Let’s hope we can avoid the New Mexico experience.

White River Vision Plan Outlined, 3 New Films Showcased

On February 13 at Holliday Park, Brad Beaubien of the Indianapolis Department of Metropolitan Development made a presentation on the White River Vision Plan. The goal is to better make the White River waterfront the front door of Broad Ripple. Ideas include a public boat dock and a river promenade. However, other ideas like removing the dam in Broad Ripple are not on the table since such dams serve a purpose. The plan will be sent this summer. There was absolutely no mention of the controversial IndyParks Broad Ripple Park transfer of 5 acres of land – including along the White River—to use for doctor’s offices. Details of the Vision at www.mywhiteriver.com. Relatedly, on February 21 at the Indianapolis Art Center, 3 new short films on the White River debuted. Sponsored by Indiana Humanities, the films chronicled the importance of the White River to central Indiana. While the films were great, I was not aware the River was safe to swim in much less eat the fish caught in the river. In any event, it’s a great idea to refocus on area on the White River which as the films noted has historically been ignored or treated like a sewer. You can stream the short films on line. Details at www.indianahumatities.org For details on this and other Red Line construction go to IndyGoRed.com.

Further, Amtrak has announced it wants to ditch long-distance service also ending the three day a week train that runs from Chicago to Indy to New York City.

Clue: S equals V

Sudoku is a nine by nine grid. The solution (each puzzle has only one) will have all the numbers from one through nine in every row and every column. In addition, the grid is divided into nine three-by-three sections. Each of these three-by-three sections will also contain all the numbers from one through nine. Each Sudoku puzzle from Pappocom can be solved using logic alone. If you prefer guessing, you can – but there is a logical way to solve every puzzle. Lets try to place a 6 in the left section of the top row of the easy puzzle containing 2-4-5. The 6 in the middle section of the top row eliminates the spaces to the left of the 4. The 6 in the right section of the top row eliminates the spaces to the left of the 2. The 6 in the left section of the bottom row eliminates the left-most column of 3 spaces. The only place left is directly to the left of the 5. You have learned one technique used to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

Chateau YOU


Chateau Souverain holds a special place in the hearts and palates of California Cabernet fans. In 1944, Leland Smith bought ground on Howell Mountain in the Napa Valley, pulled out the prune vines, and planted Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine grape thrived in that soil and climate. Smith’s pioneering spirit created one of the most coveted areas in which to grow Cabernet. Wines from Howell Mountain are distinctive with bold, intense flavors and high price tags. The winery moved to the Alexander Valley in Sonoma county in the 70’s and expanded its wine making by creating wines from grapes grown in that area as well. In 2006 it moved to a new home in one of Sonoma county’s oldest locations, the historic Asti winery. I’ve had the pleasure of sampling the wines at both locations, including its modern style of classic Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s rich and bold with layers of black and red fruit and warm spice that lingers nicely in a smooth silky finish. The Chateau Souverain name comes from Smith’s spin on the French word “sovereign”. The icons on the label reflect that sentiment. A crown represents the wineries lineage as one of the first in the state. The grape leaf reflects its commitment to varietal and style. And the California grizzly bear pays homage to the history of the region and its original residents. Chateau Souverain’s respect for the past is equaled by its vision for the future that includes making wine more approachable and fun to share. Hence the FREE personalized label. Make yours at www.souverainlabel.com and instantly have your very own “ chateau” or “house” wine. Or just enjoy a bottle with the original label. The winery makes that easy too. Local retailers are listed at www.souverain.com/find

by Brandt Carter Anticipation! I finally put my outdoor Christmas wreaths away! Yes, I am anticipating spring. This year you can ready the welcome mat for Wednesday, March 20, at 5:58 EDT. (Yes, I know you will have changed your clocks already!) You may have already celebrated spring on March 1, the meteorological first day of the spring quarter. However, the astronomical spring or vernal equinox that divides the season from winter as the first day of spring is March 20. Some interesting trivia about this spring event. The March equinox and the Full Worm Moon will occur on the same day, the first time since 1981. This March’s full moon will be brighter and bigger; thus, it joins the company of the other recent super moons. Another interesting fact is that there will not be a March 21 spring equinox in the world again until 2101. So take note and observe this phenomenon. Not only does this day signify the length of day and night nearly equal in all parts of the world, but it ushers in the first season of the year. Days lengthen, temperatures warm, and nature becomes more active. You may want to sharpen your powers of observation: • Can you find some worms? They emerge at this time; thus, the name The Full Worm Moon. It may be time to gather a few worms and go fishing! • Check out your yard and the parks. The grass is greening, buds are forming, and early wildflowers can be seen. You may also see a perky hellebores (Lenten Rose) blooming. Have you seen a crocus or daffodil yet? Or, are you just seeing the green leaves pushing up through the chilly soil? • This is the time to collect sap from maple trees. When cool nights and warm days happen, the sap in the sugar maple trees run. You can visit Holliday Park, Conner Prairie, or Parke County to try your hand at maple syrup making. • Early bird gardeners are also inspired to begin planting. Depending on the weather, gardeners may build cold frames or use their own greenhouses where cold weather crops can be safely planted. Look to nature to tell you when to plant: ◊ Blooming crocus are your cue to plant radishes, parsnips, and spinach. ◊ When the forsythia is in bloom, it is safe to plant peas, onion, and a variety of lettuces. ◊ Half-hardy vegetables, including beets, carrots, and chard, can be planted when the daffodils blossom. • Wildlife becomes busy. Birds are singing more and some species are even nesting. Some birds are returning and others are migrating through. Chipmunks reappear and raccoons may begin raiding your feeders and garbage cans. • Take time to notice how the sun arcs across the sky. It shifts towards the north and is said to be the beacon for migrating birds. It’s a wonderful time of the year…a time of rebirth. There are many songs and saying about spring. Here is a favorite diviner of mine: “When the dandelions bloom early in spring, there will be a short season. When they bloom late, expect a dry summer.” Let’s see if this is true. I’m awaiting spring with anticipation. Get ready, it is coming. Spring has never failed us even if a late snow may dampen our hopes.
