- When planning your garden, consider easy to grow vegetables such as radishes, snap peas, and kale.
- Prune fruit trees in late winter/early spring, as the trees are near the time when they break out of dormancy and develop new growth.
- Benjamin Franklin introduced kohlrabi (shown in photo above) to colonial America. "Kohlrabi" is a German word that originated from the Italian cavolo rapa, meaning "cabbage turnip". If you've never grown kohlrabi give it a try! It tastes wonderful baked or steamed with a sprinkle of salt.
- Good news! When oak trees bend with snow in January, good crops may be expected.
