Fun on the Web Nov 29, 2010 Plan Your Garden

Now is the time to start planning a garden for the spring. You have plenty of time to order catalogs to get those heirloom tomato seeds, sets, and starter plants. Besides what better way to warm up than to think about spring?

They suggest "In the North, try this trick we learned from one of our gardeners. Surround your cool weather vegetable beds with hay bales. Find some old windows at yard sales. Place the windows over the hay bales to create a roof for your garden. The hay will insulate your garden, and the windows let sun reach your soil and plants. Even with snow piled around your beds, your vegetables will stay warm enough to thrive all winter!"
