    Hi. My name is Beth and I am addicted to gardening.

    I am in zone 6B and am depressed that the garden is done for the year. :Bawling: I have some salad greens that are still out and doing decently...but is there anything I can plant now? Can I plant something new using cold frames? What about cold weather plants like broccoli? Is it to late? :help:

    I've never felt like this before....what do I do?

    I'm gonna start some herbs indoors. Maybe that will help. :shrug:

    Hi Beth!

    I feel your pain. I've been without since the cows knocked down the fence and let the chickens in to eat the fall and winter plants. So you see it's not my fault! :p

    Anyway, I don't know about starting stuff this late, as I'm in zone 8, and things aren't really growing right now, just kind of hangin' out.

    Order some new catalogs and get a new pad of graph paper and see if some planning will help.

    have you put compost and leaves or straw on your garden?
    I put about 4-7 inches over my whole garden.
    I put some shoplights up and grow lettuce. Making sprouts is fun.
    check out the online stores for seeds, make a garden plan. Have a few catalogs sent. it really will pass much quicker than you think.

    I am zone 5b, still picking brussel sprouts.

    In the late fall I mainly work in the flower beds. This weekend I laid a new bed, today I planted roses and lambs ears. Lots of work to be done mulching flower beds!
