If you're planning to start a vegetable garden, now is a good time to start planning. You will need to know an approximate date of the last frost in your area. (maps here). Then look at when to start seeds (put in your final spring frost date and use the calculator). Some seeds may be started indoors, others might be planted outside with a little help (cut the bottom off a gallon milk jug and use as a cloche if you're worried about overnight frost and remove during the day).
