This is my first time winter sowing and it's been a blast. I'm enjoying seeing what's sprouting for people. I like to compare what's sprouting for me to what's sprouting for others in the same zone or zones close by. So, I find it really useful when people have their zone information under their names. It's easy to do. All you have to do is click on "my info", then click on "manage your preferences", and then on the right side of the page, there is a rectangle where you can click on "Your Location". Then at the bottom of that page, you can select your zone, and then click the "update the preferences" button. Okay, so maybe it is a few steps, but I find it so useful. Anyway, I think that it's a really useful tool.
