It has generally been a very mild (and not to mention wet) winter so far, as witnessed by many early spring flowers blooming super early this year.  Some of the first daffodils have already come and gone by mid January, which is quite extreme to say the least.  As a result the soil is generally warmer than usual, and this means that conditions for sowing new crops are already almost upon us.
