It is still snowing here in Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula adding to the several feet of snow on the ground. The only signs of spring are the extra sunlight, and our Easter grass. Growing grass indoors is a long Finnish tradition that symbolizes the coming of spring. It is especially fun to do this when you have kids in the house.
