    I live in the Ohio valley. Last week our temperature ranged 71-58 and this week the high is 35. We had a very mild December but look out here comes January. My birthday and my husbands are in January. We often say we are going to have a may birthday instead.

    I love gardening since I retired. But mostly flowers but I am going to have a small raised garden this year of vegetables

    Take Care
    Susan.

    Welcome, Susan!
    It's a good time to start gardening. With the prices of groceries increasing, growing vegetables and fruits at home is even more rewarding! Like gardeners during WW2, and a garden program in the 80s(? who knows, time flies) I sometimes call mine my "Victory Garden".

    What vegetables will you grow?
