January in the Vegetable Garden

New year, new things, new plans... Soooooo excited!  I can feel down in my gardener's bones that it's going to be a good one.

This month we can get a few warm weather things into the garden - BUT BE PREPARED TO PROTECT THEM!  We might not have had any 'winter' yet, but we're far from being out of the woods for some plant killing weather - frost or even a freeze... ya just never know.
