About The Zone 3 Gardener

This is a place for discussion of issues related to cold weather gardening. We'll be looking at sheltering plants from the elements, including constructing a hoop house, picking species of vegetables designed for cool climates, sourcing seeds, managing pests and other ideas for high-yield gardening that come up along the way.

Here we are in beautiful Hardiness Zone 3B. If you're in Zone 4 or 5, you're welcome to join us too. (Our ZIP Code as a whole is classified as Zone 4A, but we're on the edge and our climate is more like 3B.) I'm hoping that one day my garden will be visible from outer space.
