it's been pretty dry there right? moisture is a good thing in any form (unless you've wet yourself :) ). haha...
Last year was extremely dry. This year has been decently wet. Once the ground freezes the snow does not help with ground moisture.

Here the winter snows mostly sublimate which is the water turning directly from a solid (snow or ice) into a gas due to the nearly constant wind. Anything that actually melts either runs off or forms puddles which turn into ice. Since the ground is frozen, it cannot sink into the ground.

If I could find anybody that even likes gardening would be a miracle. Most say I have a black thumb and cannot grow anything. I don't have time. I hate gardening. I hate dirt. Of my neighbors, one across the street started a small garden and I was happy to see flowers and some cabbage and things growing. The neighbor beside me has an area that had a garden years ago and he had rabbits then, but now he does not garden at all. He never says things like you have weeds or tells me how to do anything. He says nice things like look at those beans climb.

The man that moved away who is from England, now is another thing. He did try to grow a garden a couple of years and he spent all his time telling me how I did everything wrong and in England we did this and that. In England the mint is different than here and you cannot get it here and you grow this special mint and boil it in new potatoes, but In England the potatoes are better than here. LOL In England the cow manure comes from better cows than here. LOL

So if you believe in Gumperson's Law (that the probability of anything happening is inversely
proportional to its desirability) then you should have a spectacular garden ;).
