Generally around this time of year I start feeling pretty down and my thoughts are instinctively drawn to gardening on a sunny spring day. This year is no exception. I am really into 'square foot gardening' (for those not in the know, its a gardening techinique that involves growing lots of veggies in very little space)
I usually take care of the vegetables and the wife usually plants/cares for the flowers (at least the annuals). I like to grow: corn, cucumbers, cabbage, onions, tomatoes, herbs, broccoli, green peppers, hot peppers (all kinds), zucchini. Have had limited success with other crops including: carrots, lettuce, pumpkins, watermelon and squash. Since there's nothing in Michigan that can be done outdoors this time of year, I'm forced to push the early gardening envelope by starting seeds indoors in a few weeks.
Any other avid gardners out there? I envy you folks in climates that can maintain a garden this time of year!
