It's getting serious now. I mailed off for my first garden seeds today - after checking with Ferry Morse to make sure the varieties I want weren't available with them.
I've found several useful resources on the web for the upcoming gardening season. The USDA has published a new "Plant Hardiness" map. I noted this: "No posters of the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map have been printed. But state, regional, and national images of the map can be downloaded and printed in a variety of sizes and resolutions." So, feel free to print or post the image of your state. I just couldn't figure out how to resize the image here for KY. We are now officially Zone 6b where I live.
