With winter here in full swing, I find myself both longing for, and simultaneously, dreading the onset of spring. I crave the warm weather and the rebirth of the garden, but I dread it because there is much work to do before it gets here, and not enough time. I am already starting cabbage and carrot seeds, preparing my seed starting mix, and getting my beds ready on those few nice days that we have. I'll plant cabbage, carrots, and kale out under low tunnels in 2-3 weeks, salad crops will follow shortly. All of this, I am doing in between teaching and working on the house. All in all, though, I am excited for what the upcoming year has in store.
