Cold Climate

Enough with the self-pity! Gardening in a cold climate isn’t more difficult than growing in other climates, as long as you grow plants suited to the climate and the soil. I’d rather put up with a long, cold winter than a long, hot humid summer. Now if you want to make it harder on yourself, try growing plants that need more heat, a longer growing season, sandy soil if you’ve got clay, or need acid soil when you’ve got alkaline. Some people like a challenge. Some people just want someone to point the way. Which are you?

That’s what I thought.
