For most gardeners this is the time of year when cabin fever is at its worst. There is little to be done in the yard. Planting is not an option. Weeding is impossible. And looking out the window watching the grass grow is nothing more than a joke.
The ground is frozen. The north winds are blowing. The trees, the shrubs and the flowers have gone into dormancy. There’s no getting around it – digging in the dirt is done for at least the next couple of months.
