This week, as the glaciers deposited in the backyard by the St. Valentine's Day storm began to recede, I got itchy to grow something. The soil was not quite frozen, not quite thawed. The sun was stronger than it had been during the dim days of February, but it was still far from welcoming. Then there was the wind, raw and biting, great for lifting up kites and knocking down cyclists. March was teasing. Yesterday, the weather seemed to invite me to scratch the ground, to believe that the grip of winter has loosened.

Jules Verne's character may have strived to make it around the world in 80 days, but the pupils at Hampstead's Spring Garden Elementary School did it in five. Without leaving school grounds, they flew from Australia to West Africa, China to Western Europe, Japan to Mexico, racking up the miles and stickers of parrots, fans and flowers on their unofficial passports - a lanyard around their necks. Along the way, they learned that rojo means red in Spanish, that an African thumb piano looks nothing like the ebony-and-ivory keyed instrument they know, and that eating Cheerios with chopsticks is not as hard as it looks.

The lawsuit names the state, the county Board of Commissioners, the school board and Spring Garden's acting assistant principal, Karen Rogers, as defendants.

My wife and I would like to do a small, intensive vegetable garden in the rear of our rowhouse. Must we double-dig the soil to garden intensively? Yes, I think it is critical to double-dig the soil in an intensive garden. To produce abundant fruits and vegetables, plants need ample soil for their roots to grow in. However, because plants are spaced very closely in an intensive garden, there is a minimum of soil available between each plant. This is made up for by double-digging. The soil in a traditional garden is only prepared 6-12 inches deep; however, double-digging prepares the soil 18 inches deep or more.

EVERY STEP COUNTS when you're a pupil at Spring Garden Elementary School. This fall, Spring Garden pupils earned about $12,000 by walking an imaginary route across Maryland. As they walked to raise money for field trips and PTA-sponsored activities, pupils also learned about the geography of Maryland and discovered how even small personal efforts can yield big results. They walked or did aerobic activities with their families, in physical education class or at sports meets. They logged miles, or logged minutes that were converted into miles through a formula devised by physical education teachers Craig Walker and Denise Spangler.

"It's a real affirmation," said Principal Gloria Julius, who received the news during an afternoon telephone call from Maryland Sen. Paul S. Sarbanes.
