    Would I upset you guys if I told you we grow are garden year around? Nothing is perfect, I have to have 2 garden plots so I can replant my new crop before my old crop quits producing.

    I tried starts once.... they all died. Didn't realize the moisture they required! Swore would never do again and haven't. Do great with sets every time if they haven't froze out.[​IMG]

    Planted some garlic and dill last weekend. Ground still too cold / wet to work. Rhubarb is starting to sprout.....asparagus won't be too far behind.

    I don't know about the rest of you, I love winter cold snow under my boots, ice crystals in the trees. But I'm done this year.....come on Spring!

    Started my jalapeños in anticipation of warmer temps.

    I know what you mean about the snow. Here in the mountains, you better like snow! However, now that there are bare patches showing in my yard, I am ready for spring. I am particularly waiting for the snow to get off the bed I planted my garlic in last year. Every year I worry it won't sprout. Every year it sprouts. Come on spring, I want to see that garlic!
