For the past 24 hours my kitchen table has been covered with a mound of seed packets, envelopes, and small paper bags. The other writers here at NDiN and I are organizing a private seed swap so we can share our excess between the (now) nine (!!!) of us. Since I’ve gotten the seeds out, eight inches of snow has fallen here on the lakeside and I’m finding myself more and more anxious for spring to get here. I’m excited to try out a potted garden this year and I can’t wait until the Farmers Market opens up again. Until then I’ll be daydreaming about having our own property again where I can grow a 4-season garden.
One of our lucky readers won’t be daydreaming – you’ll be planning how to extend your harvests throughout the next winter referencing The Winter Harvest Handbook: Year Round Vegetable Production Using Deep Organic Techniques and Unheated Greenhouses.
Using a random number generator, I got our winner!!
Comment number 32, Susan from Maine, will have the opportunity to learn about how to extend her crops through the brutal northeast winters!
Congratulations, Susan! Contact me via email (at whirliegigs at gmail dot com) so I can send a package your way!
Thank you all for joining and sharing your winter desires. It’s been fun to read through what each of you would like access to over the coldest months of the year. An interesting tidbit: Most of you desire to have the ability to grow your own greens – specifically kale, followed by spinach, then lettuces!
