Hopefully cabin fever hasn’t set in for you as bad as in winter 2014, a year in which the phrase “Polar Vortex” became a household name. 2015 has already broken records in February for consecutive days below freezing, however the long range forecast does look promising with consistent 30’s & 40’s to come. Unfortunately it is too early to start working in the garden, but is there something you can do now to relieve that “outdoor itch” that has built up after a long winter? Of course!
