    I grew up in northwestern Ontario and learned most of my gardening there - very long cold snowy winters, very short cool summers. So I can relate to your cold! Hope your gardens are doing okay! Do you have any snow yet where you are?

    Do -29c/f in wintertime with 5->6 feet of snow count as a cold climate? We do got 30.c (86.F) in summertime though. But that's only for a month or 2 if we are lucky.

    I suppose that would qualify ;)
    I guess you have a hothouse or something similar for gardening?

    Nope. Growing in pots and plants it outside when the weather allows it and hope for the best. Got a little spot of garden at my parents house. I live in a apartment complex. Would love to have a greenhouse though. Army dude and I are sharing the space at the moment.

    i am in Colorado, this spring will be my first out side garden but i spent 5 years in Montana and due to the cold and living on Malmstorm AFB i did not try out doors gardening, but we did grow some small herbs in windows. if you find anything that works well there let me know we have similar conditions here in Colorado as well.
