Its that time of year again. The days are getting longer, the sun feels warmer, the weather starts to warm up... then you wake up the next morning and its -10F and you are knocked right back into reality. This is February, in Alaska. Spring is NOT just around the corner, although it is only about 2.5 months away now.
My mind is already on my garden. I'm thinking about what I will be growing, where everything is going to be planted, how will the greenhouse be set up this year etc. I have several things that I am sure will be in the garden, but I always try to plant one or two things I have never grown before. Its not always a success, but its fun! And that's a big part of having a garden, the fun of it!
What will I be growing for sure this year?
Any suggestions from my readers for the "Something New" column? What's your favorite "fun" plant to grow in the garden?
