|How are the Northern gardeners doing as real winter has been here for sometime?|
Too cold to even think about winter sowing. All the potting soil is frozen!

|Happy Winter Solstice to you too, and thanks for reminding me bring in a bag of potting soil from the unheated garage, Caroline! |
We're into freezing rain now, on top of the snow. It was kind of crunchy going out to fill the bird feeders this morning. I had to stamp my feet to break through the crust, or I would have gone sliding down to the bottom of the garden. I sent DH out to get groceries in his SUV, as I was afraid my car (which has low clearance) would not get over the wall of now frozen-solid slush that the snowplow left at the end of our driveway. Gotta love winter!

|We have real, live snow finally! Two or three inches worth from yesterday. |
A friend posted this photo on FB; thought the folk on this forum would appreciate it.
And thanks for the reminder about it's being Solstice. I'd forgotten!
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.
