Yes, we're stuck in a polar vortex (does anyone else feel like that's a term that belongs in a comic book?), but I'm pretty certain that's not stopping my fellow gardeners from dreaming of digging in the dirt. If you've been perusing seed catalogs or sketching up raised bed designs or debating on when you should start your seedlings indoors, I'd love to hear from you.
I'm looking for gardens to feature in an upcoming issue of the magazine. We'd interview you in the next couple of months for a story, and we'd take pictures while your garden was at its peak this spring or summer. Whether you have an outstanding kitchen garden featuring fresh vegetables and herbs or a spectacular ornamental garden, I'd love to hear from all types of gardeners.
And if you're looking for a little garden inspiration, the Shady Acres Herb Farm catalog is online, Earl Holasek Greenhouses is already thinking spring and Willow Winds Gardens is making a list of the hot peppers it's growing. You could also sign up for classes at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. What other signs of spring have you seen? (No, it's not too early to start looking!)
