After three snow storms in as many weeks, deep snow is covering the ground everywhere in Maine and planting season seems impossibly far away.  But inside the greenhouses at the McKay Farm & Research Station at Unity College (ME) in rural Thorndike, the air smells of potting soil and summer, and the vibrant green of tiny onion and other vegetable and flower seedlings is a hopeful harbinger of what’s to come.
