I am getting very energized about gardening, due in part to this beautiful page about getting ready for a beautiful Spring now:
You just gotta start now - during January or February. Starting your garden in Spring (April- May) does not a spectacular garden make. Starting your garden in Spring means long hours spent pulling out weeds run rampant. . .If you love to grow your plants from seed, sow them now. Most Spring blooming annuals like to germinate during the cool weather – around 50 to 60 degrees. They are called hardy annuals and love to grow when its cool and bloom before the temperatures reach the high 70’s. Sow your seeds no later than mid February and they’ll bloom in April to early May.
