Well the good news about this bone chilling winter weather is that it will lead to a great spring and summer season. The reason is simple, when you have a sustained deep freeze as we have been experiencing, as the smart farmer knows, the freezing temps will lead to a better soil for spring planting. Also Mosquitoes and other pests are in hibernation now and the deep freeze will help decrease the population and the spread of West Nile virus. Now all we need now is a below average rainfall for the spring and we will be lined up for a fantastic summer with less pests attacking us and our plantings. Sooooo…. bundle up and enjoy the cold winter weather and remember the benefits are just around the corner !!
