Read from February 20 to 26, 2012

I skimmed the second half of this. I'm convinced that this author is from further north than me and doesn't seem to give any indication of their growing zone which frustrated me. Also it kept saying to plant and harvest the same plants month after month after month. And I know you can plant in cycles but eventually it felt really redundant and started to confuse me.

The pictures are lovely, it has nice to do lists but I think something that is based on average date of last frost would be more useful.
