I don’t know about you but I am so sick and tired of this relentless cold and wet weather I could just spit. Every where I look it seems to appear that spring is here but it sure doesn’t feel like it. Days in the low to mid-40s and nights still in the 30s. The ground is so cold and wet that I have absolutely no desire to bend down and pull a weed or plant a new perennial. My vegetable garden soil in my raised beds is ready but every time I think I am going to plant some new transplants it is raining again. What’s a gardener to do? Go to the Home and Garden Show of course.
