I had to replant my garden last year. A thunderstorm with a lot of hail destroyed most of it in May of last year.

Dango, do you have a greenhouse? Or room for one? I have seen videos of people who set up a rocket stove mass heater in a greenhouse to keep it warm in the winter. Looks like a great idea for the northern climate.

The whole back of my house , to the forest is all huge 7 x 12 and one 7 x8 double pain picture windows facing South , South East. I'm talking close to 60 linear ft. with direct sun-light up till about 2 PM. from sun-rise.! The guy I bought this house from had a thing about the out-doors and so do I and my wife. I built double removable double shelves just for this so we have like 115+ linear feet.!

Don't have to work very hard once they are potted and even freshens the air when they start.Killer tomatoes , cukes , beans , etc. . Had to miss last year , but will this year..! Good luck all and see if I get better luck with peppers.!

Same here, usually we get hit with another freeze that puts you back to the beginning. Last year we had issues with some of the Tomatoes plants no producing and/or growing like they should.

Re-attack the garden area this year prior to planting!

I think I will pick up a couple of Kiwi bushes this year. Damned things are expensive in the stores. You have to have two- one male and one female- to produce any fruit.
