Sick of Winter? Get Planning!

Are you as sick of winter as I am? I'm ready to burst!

So I've begun to plan garden projects for the year. In the past, I have had a habit of waiting until it warms up to get started on gardening, but this year I am hard at work planning and starting projects that I can do before the thaw!

So far, the things I've been working on include:
  • small deck to set potted plants
  • adding real windows to the framed plastic greenhouse I built last year
  • adding a second tier of wood to my shallow raised beds
  • plastic barrel planters for large plants like trees/brambles
  • new strawberry beds out back for experimental rare strawberry varieties
  • kitchen counter refinishing
  • kitchen cupboard rebuild
Are you working on anything homesteading-related before the warm weather arrives, or are you waiting for May flowers to grace us with their presence?
