It's snowing in New Jersey.
Monday, 11 Jul 11 Blizzard 32°C / 89°F
OK, not really. Just in my mind. You see, it’s mid-July, and this is about the time of year when I get utterly sick of Summer. Well, usually it’s sometime in August, when the heat, humidity, and plant diseases finally get to me, but this year things have come to a head earlier. Yup, I am thoroughly disgusted with the weather, the garden’s performance, the harvest (or lack thereof).
So, it is with pleasure that I reach for the Winter Harvest Handbook, and my seed stash. I am about to pull out the non-performing veg, and replace them with my Fall/Winter garden. All the while, I am dreaming of blizzards, and of harvesting carrots and Winter greens from the cold frame buried under a snowdrift.
