It's only December and I'm ready for winter to be over. This is the first year that we'll be able to eat the asparagus! My tastebuds are tingling with the thought. I did better fall garden prep than usual this year, so I'm itching to see how black the soil is this spring.
I also got a hold of some really old gardening literature on Google Books and they have some spectacular advice that I'm going to implement this year, such as starting seeds indoors in stages - things that are planted in early spring vs things that are planted in late spring. Sometimes that old information gets lost.
I'm going to start my broccoli this year right after Christmas so it's ready to plant as soon as the snow melts. I'm also going to start as much as I can indoors this year so I don't have to worry about seedlings getting crowded out by weeds and wondering what's a weed and what's a seedling. Another problem that would solve is the seeds that I lose to the birds every year.

Well, it isn't winter yet (Dec 21st), but I know the feeling. The anxiety for spring invades all of us. Starting seeds really early works some times and but not all of the time, but it helps keep your mind off the cold.

I agree with you on the winter, even though we don't get too cold here. I'm a summer person. Maybe, at least keep day light savings time, year round.

Winter planning is so helpful in battling the gardening withdrawl. I agree, thinking about the black dirt is exciting! Keep us posted on your starts. ~Andrea

That sounds great! I wish that I could plan ahead like that, but I'm not that organized!
