Spring will come…..eventually. In the meantime, with snow on the ground, now is a great time to get caught up on some reading and research. In between textbook chapters and articles, be sure take a little time to squeeze in some seed catalogs and garden books! See the previous post for suggestions of some good seed company websites and let us know what you would like to see growing in the garden this spring.
Blogging has also clearly become a popular venue for sharing information (and opinions).
