Hey, a lot of gardens are waking up! One of my fav blogs from Cleveland, Ohio is back online and thinking of the seasonal potential. Check out http://www.thisgardenisillegal.com/. Anyone who uses Baker Creek seeds is a friend of mine!
My (B.C.) peas didn't mind the last cold snap and have surprised me with their appearance. This was my first shot at this type of veggie, so I tried not to expect much. Then my hopes really fell with the snow and hard freezes.
My (all heirloom, non-GMO B.C. too!) kale, Boston lettuce, and rainbow chard did freeze off but the spinach and collards loved the cold. Central Texas Gardener drawled, "You can't kill a collard," and I understand. They can also stand our summer heat too without bolting too quickly. Initially, I had put them in the crappiest place in the garden because I thought I didn't care for their taste but I just didn't know them well. The funny thing is, they're also "green cover", so at the end of the season I'll turn them over and they'll leave that clay-ridden area better than it was.
I'm glad to have learned more about gardening this year. Even (crop) failures really aren't.
Everything is growth if you know how to look.
