[nafex] Poor Man's Fertilizer

It snowed here today in Maine.  A warm, wet spring snow, barely 
enough to stick to the ground.  I was in the Blue Hill post office 
this morning and as each new person came in the door they would make 
some comment about the weather and usually finish off with,  "Yup. 
Poor man's fertilizer."

I have always been fascinated by this expression so I started asking 
the old timers about it's origin and whether or not there was any 
truth to it.  No one seemed to know.

Does anyone know where it came from?  Is a sprint snow really good 
for the crops?
