Cold, got 4" snow, with some blowing and drifting, but no problem getting out and about. Spent some time perusing seed/plant catalogs and marking pages. The next step is making lists that include prices. After that, cold reality sets in, and thinning begins!

Lots of dire news about the cold front, everyone okay out there? It'll
be in the 60s here today, I haven't had to even take my coat out of the closet for the last week. Not trying to make y'all feel bad or anything.
I ordered my onion plants - Candy and something called Texas Sweet -
it's probably too many onions but I'll pull some early for green onions.
Bought a few seeds too. I noticed Renee's Garden is advertising
different vegetable colors in one seed package, you can get 3 colors of
peppers or squash or beans for example, and they claim the seeds are
color coded so you can tell what you're planting. Nice idea. I will try
the squash and bell peppers this year. Still need to order the rest of
my veggies and some flowers.
My heart sunk last weekend when I saw how much grass was coming up in
the dry garden already, I usually try to pull it by hand because of all
the wildflowers in there. There's no way I could do that by hand. But
when I looked there were no poppy seedlings, so I think I'll just hoe
