Punx told us that spring would be less than 6 weeks away. That was 2 weeks ago. Here in Idaho we have had a few inklings of good weather, but today it is snowing around my house. A bit over freezing though, and that is good.
In a few weeks, guys like me, will be out getting ready to set up a garden. Laying out the borders, tilling in some compost from my compost bin, and starting my indoor seedlings. Good things are on the way.
This year I am going to try some brussel sprouts in my outdoor garden and an artichoke in my greenhouse. I have never tried either. I am not sure that our weather here will work for the sprouts. Too dry possbily. As far as the artichoke, they take a long time to grow properly and may not work in a hothouse.
