Yes – it is April in Seattle and it is freezing. But, while it may be snowing in the Cascades, that does not mean it is not a good time to start your own urban garden. Spring will come soon and nothing is better than picking your own veggies out of your backyard or window box. The joy of seeing your garden explode with an abundance of lettuce, squash and peas is worth every cold day spent prepping the garden for the Summer sun.
