Year-round Gardening

Not much to report from the frozen backyard, and it is so miserable most days I don't even peek out there, but I was thrilled to make a homegrown salad of arugula and radishes--on January 2nd! Not everything in the greenhouses is thriving, but the spinach is also hanging in there, and if it has survived so far, it'll be gangbusters in very early spring.In the meantime, I am perusing seed catalogs and shopping for lights to start seeds. I even took a look at the Farmers' Almanac weather predictions (cool and dry in spring), so maybe this will be the year I get a good spring crop. Spring can't get here soon enough.
