Anyone else see signs of awakening life in their gardens?

Yup, little trails of dirt where the snow has melted. ARGH! MOLES!!!! Not how I wanted to deal with my first spring in my new house. :(

Still have have the lawn covered with snow, though, so it'll be a few days more before I can see how extensive it is. I have a feeling I've only seen the tip of the mole-berg.

Given the sudden appearance of crows, too, I'm guessing we have a lot of grubs. I'm going out now to try the milky spore method. I have some patience since I'm really going after veggies in my first year here, and am not a stickler for a good lawn (yet). I hope it works!

BTW, not really seeing too much popping up here in southern NH yet, just some thick grass in a few patches. But my snapdragon seeds are popping up in my little peat pots! :)
