  • Just in my head. We have snow and frigid temps here now. But I look forward to the planting. I love gardening and canning and freezing the fruits of my labor.

  • Its too cold here but I am planning what I am going to plant. I have some seeds I ordered and those will go in. I just need to buy the soil, miracle grow, and some more seeds. I wont actually START on it though until towards the end of March.

  • I am!!
    I'm doing some new containers this year for my herbs, my old ones just don't look nice anymore. And I've bought some plants to keep in containers on the back patio that I can take with me when we move.
    Blueberries, bush cherries, peaches, apricots, plums, pears,gooseberries, cranberries, honeyberries, raspberries, elderberries, currants and some new herbs I haven't tried yet. Just waiting for all of it to arrive in April. :)

  • Only mentally, because it would be quite difficult to do physically with all of this snow.

    We plan to grow:
    Herbs
    Strawberries
    Blackberries
    Raspberries
    Pumpkins
    Corn
    Green Beans
    Peas
    Melons

    I'm not sure what else. I had a list, but I think it got tossed.

  • No, winter came really late for us (no snow until Jan) and I'm not planning on doing anything until I know spring is really here.
