Now that Christmas has come and gone the new year is a week or 2 old, we can relax and look forward to spring and the GARDEN.
Then the mail comes and in the place of Christmas cards and sale flyers….seed catalogs. My favorite is Johnny Selected Seeds…so much great stuff. http://www.johnnyseeds.com/
OK so what activities can we do in the garden when te freezing weather, ice and snow are around?
First question: Do we have anything growing over the winter?
Greens, roots, anything “stored” in the soil”
Did I properly clear/clean the garden in the fall?
Second question: What am I planting this year? Anything new? Where did I plant everything last season? [important for crop rotation] When can I plant? Start seedlings?
Third Question? : What work is necessary to prepare the garden for the season? Long term planning= helpful this yer but payoff will be realized over several years.
The following posts and articles address some of these ideas:
