Well, the in-basket for my small farm newsgroup is filling up a lot quicker these days. Must be time to start thinking about spring planting! Truth be told, we’ve not only been thinking a lot about it for a while, we’ve been actively doing something about it. We have that luxury out here in SoCal. Unfortunately, many of our farming brethren aren’t blessed with relatively mild weather conditions we have here. Yeah, I know, we’ve had more than our fair share of rain lately but it’s not as bad as digging yourself out from several feet of snow, or so I would imagine.
