USDA Updates Plant Hardiness Zones

Are you planning your vegetable garden already?  We are! We built a raised bed last summer, but never got it filled. Here's Peter the Cat helping with construction...

We're gonna fill it up with beans and tomatoes and herbs and maybe some okra... and ... and... and...  (what are your Must Haves?!?)

We're also planning to do some container gardening using our friend Andy's ingenious plastic tub subterranean watering system.  As you can see, it's a pretty productive!

Andy has promised a guest blog soon to explain his system.

In the meantime, it's good to note that the USDA has just updated its Plant Hardiness Zones.  They've been working on this update for about a decade.  Our zone changed. Yours may have too. You can search by zip code here.
