Thank you for this, Sunny! I had no clue what to do with the plants in winter if there is no snow. It used to be a no-brainer for me...this helps!

Thanks SunnyKayak. Those are very helpful links to us as we have a large kitchen garden ready for planting and about 1/4 acres of land where we plan on making a pumpkin patch, winter greens garden and some fruit trees. We have a bit under 4 acres and use only 2 acres for our home and lawn area. It is only 6 months old so we have lots and lots of planting to accomplish this Spring.

Just a tip, dig your holes in the fall, and plant your fruit trees in the dead of winter. The trees will be asleep and not know they have been transplanted. When they awaken in spring, they just start growing, no transplant shock.
