Randall, thanks for your experience! I'm probably too obsessive. With cool climate and late spring frosts, using a light in the window cheers me up. Ive been starting tomatoes and chilis indoors for many years. This year earlier than usual but I need the boost.

That light system looks so easy and costs so little its too tempting to pass up!

Not with this method, but I've "been there, done that" with trying to start veggies early (in the basement). With mixed results, I decided the effort wasn't worth the final product. I'll just wait for Spring. But lots of luck with your project, Daniel!

I think this will be my weekend project.  It will help me get more plants started early for the vegetable and flower gardens.  It looks very easy and inexpensive to make  Much better idea than anything I could think of.

One thing sorta neat about a "snow garden"--animal tracks. Mostly rabbit, but I see deer, 'possum, raccoon, dogs. No bear. And vole runs--if only I could catch them. What ever happened to hibernation?  Persimmons are snatched up as soon as they hit the ground. Any leftover "stalks" in my garden are nibbled on. Wild animals have to eat, too.

As far as I'm concerned, anyone who digs into the ground with a rusty shovel, to plant a tomato or an apple tree, is a "real gardener". Some of us are more obsessed than others. Some are more relaxed.

Joan, I don't know about me being a "real gardener". I'm really not. Till, sow, weed, and harvest--that's the bottom line. I don't even prune my fruit trees (looks awful and it's too much work!). Now my son-in-law, that's different. He IS a "real gardener"--a farmer gardener. Have you checked out www.silverthorn-farm.com ?  I'm going now to Eugene urban farm as you mentioned.

Joan Cary is right! I am going through gardening withdrawal!

Today we cant get the car out of the garage. Its ok, so many go through so much worse challenge. Feb is the beginning of the end of winter. I hope!

Randall, what a beautiful tree and so prolific! It must be a real pleasure to stroll in your garden. You are a real gardener, facing many challenges to get a crop from beloved trees and never knowing if the weather and pests and diseases and birds and squirrels will leave any fruit for your enjoyment. 

Daniel, I have been watching your storm as it moves across our area. Cary tells me another is over your home now and headed our way. Yes, this is a long, long winter. No snow until now, and now very cold temps with snow on top of ice. Very treacherous walking and driving. 

Watching as weather intrudes on places that are not prepared for winter conditions. I can't even imagine going out in such conditions.
