Is the hardest part of winter.
It may be sunny and warm enough, but you can't work in the garden when it is covered in wet slop. All you can do is wait.
So I wait. Seeds of some native perennials I ordered are on the way. That will give me something to do. They will be sowed in flats and left out in the cold just as in nature. By mid summer I hope to have some nice sized seedling plants to add to the garden.
Rain is melting snow while I wait.
