Really, it is.  Proof: the temperature has been above zero for a few weeks now and I am done a layer or two from January.  I am biding my time and thinking of spring.  Here are a few inspiration pieces:

Raised garden boxes

These are a great alternative to traditional gardens.  I like the walkway here and would love to see this with crushed concrete.  Plus, the raised box makes for easier harvesting and weeding and these ones here even include benches.  Pretty.


Garden boxes are fairly simple to make.  Found an article here that gives some instructions.  It would be good to aussie pokies get going on this for the year.


Also, have you seen the John Scheepers Kitchen Garden Seeds catalog?  It"s a good one.

I swear I can almost taste the tomatoes.
