It's Almost Spring!!

My gardening seeds came in the mail yesterday!! I can hardly wait to get out there. Planning the garden, where things will go, and how far apart to make the rows.

However - there is still a foot of snow on my garden - and we have a blizzard warning for today and a wind chill warning!! This is what the weather looks like for us for the next few days.






I copied and pasted this at 6:40 am, so the -22C (-7.6F) is for that time of the morning. Do you see why I am waiting for spring? These temps are in Celcius. This weather is insane!! HELP!!

Spring is only 10 days away!!! Can you tell? I can't.

It was pointed out to me in a comment - I didn't mention what I was planting!!  Here goes:
bi-color corn, carrots, cucumbers, pumpkins (small pie type), winter squash, tomatoes, onions, trying asparagus for the first time, and a variety of peppers.

  2. Sounds like a wonderful bounty. I usually wait until the mid May to start planting.

  3. Oh goodness that is cold! Stay warm and cozy indoors this week. Just have all your gardens plans ready so that you can jump right in and start digging the first warm day you get.

  7. Oooh, a vegetable garden, I'm so jealous! I've always wanted to start one, but my herb garden has always been so pathetic I'm afraid to. ;)

  8. Vegetable gardens are great.....if you like to cook! Rec'ing your seeds is a sure sign. We are still under over a foot of snow, too, but even the chipmunks have cabin fever, and are out and about!

  9. Your garden plans sound wonderful! Here in AZ I think I'm almost too late to plant... I still keep thinking I'm going to do it and then I don't. I just need to get out and do it. It's almost hot here already! =)
