Hope everyone is staying warm in all of this cold weather. The seed catalogues are arriving, so just stay inside and dream and plan your seed/plant order for spring. I have been getting lots of inquiries about planting English peas. A lot of people plant in January, but please wait till this terrible cold front passes. Soak your peas overnight for quicker germination when you do plant. I have picked my first "mess" of broccoli and am looking forward to the Brussels sprouts. Of course I have been eating kale and spinach mustard all winter. I do not know how my lettuce will do in this extreme cold, but it has been delicious too. Stay warm and enjoy your seed catalogues-spring is coming!
