As we prepare to endure another round of snow, it's hard to believe that soon we'll be donning our favorite garden clogs and digging in our yards preparing the soil for flowers, veggies, herbs and such. This past Sunday, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel provided a list of gardening advice books to help us pass the time until we are again enjoying the beautiful Wisconsin Spring and Summer. So, run out to your favorite bookstore or library and pick up a few titles to curl up with as we enjoy hearty stews and steaming cups of hot cocoa and wait for our beloved gardening season to arrive!
