Winter is in Full Swing

It was COLD last night (-11 degrees cold!!) but today is sunny and the birds are out sunning themselves in the balmy 0 degrees.  The start of official winter brought frigid temperatures, but at least they’re balanced with lengthening days.  It’s time to start planning the garden for next year.  I’m focusing on the storage crops that did well for us last year like the humble onion.  Since we don’t have a fantastic cold storage set up, the warm keepers like squash and onions are what’s doing well.  Grabbing an onion from the attic for dinner most nights feels way more satisfying than it should.

I haven’t poked a look inside the greenhouse in a few weeks.  But I’ll peer inside the next time it is reasonably warm.  Seeing those little green sprout soldiers standing ready for longer days and some water is miraculous.
