I am really looking forward to spring and getting back into the garden.
I am still in the Phoenix area and it is starting to warm up, finally. We have had 3 nights with freezing temps. Wow, I came here to escape the cold. As far as home in Cortez, I hear there is more than a foot of snow on the ground, so I can't complain. Way below freezing temps. My chickens are not happy campers, although they have a great barn they are staying in with some beautiful horses. There is a beautiful rooster named Sgt. Pepper they are keeping company with. His hen Miss Chicklet is not happy at all. Makes me wonder, how happy they will be to come back home and leave him behind.
Speaking of cold and gardens, This may not be the time in your area for composting, but it's a good time to start thinking and learning about it. Check out this link below and start thinking spring planting and happy, healthy plants. Use what you have and save some money. Go organic this year.
