It’s cold… think summer

I’m trying to forget winter by thinking about what I’ll plant in the garden this summer. I’ve already done my inventory of leftover seeds and have more tomato seeds than I thought plus lots of all sorts of vegetables and flowers. Not that it will keep me from buying something. Nicotiana for one. And some other heirloom tomato.

Next: plot out the four raised beds (and the fifth that will be built in May and filled with 10-12 tomato plants). I may go a bit overboard once I visit tomatomania (www.tomatomania.com) in May.

So how many days til the first crocus blooms? And then the daffodils and alliums? Signs of spring can’t come soon enough.
