Welcome to 2018!

It’s been frightfully cold out lately. In the garden beds we don’t have protected with low tunnels, the ground is frozen solid.

Low tunnels help absorb and trap heat, keeping the inside temps 5-20 degrees above outdoor temps depending on whether it's sunny outside. They're an easy and affordable way to extend your growing season.

However, that doesn’t mean there’s not gardening work and planning to do. Despite what the thermostat says right now, warmer weather and spring are just around the corner!

So, our tip of the month this month is a compilation… We want to get you the information you need to get you ready for the upcoming growing season. Since we’ve already got piles of helpful information to do just that, we thought we’d put them all into one helpful list, so you can pick and choose based on what you need and want to learn more about.
