After days of below freezing weather including the first subzero (Fahrenheit) temps in over a year, our ground is frozen solid. Even the compost pile (which is a cold pile) is frozen. My garden tractor will have the snow blade on it for a while longer before I can even think about swapping it to the tiller. I used it for the first time yesterday. We are breaking all kinds of 'no snow' records here in Chicago.
I should start perusing the seed catalogs and placing an order or two.
In the mean time I'll have to settle for a few herbs on a window sill.
