    GORGEOUS picture! Wisconsin is the prettiest state, isn't it? I chuckled at the "oldest student" occupation.

    citydeer, you were eager to get gardening in March. How did the growing season go? I put in 3 raised beds this year, and did fairly well given a late start due to a cold, wet spring but we had a very hot July, which delayed the growth of some of my veggies. Now I have some lettuce and herbs growing indoors, and look forward to the time when I can start my tomatoes.

    Aarrgh!! I don't think winter is ever going to end. We still have about 6 inches of snow on the ground and it is taking FOREVER to melt. We had our Gardening Spring Conference this past weekend and it's supposed to be a "fix" to tide you over until you can plant but all it really does is make you want it more.
