    Still have snow? Thinking of Spring? Lets get gardening !!!!

    Today is the day to remind you gardeners about a few things.

    1. Take an inventory of your seeds.
    2. Make a list of the seeds you need to buy.
    3. Make a wish list of the seeds and plants you would like to buy. Include new things you would like to try.
    4. Plan to Plant. Make a plan of your garden on paper, in pencil. (things change)
    5. New to gardening? Start now, start small, grow something you like to eat. Plant at least five things.
    6. Plan to plant things your family likes to eat. (plant more of what your family loves and will eat)
    7. Now is the time to order from catalogs. (especially if you want to start your own seeds)
    8. Want to start soon? Order from catalogs online. (click on ‘garden catalogs’ on the favorite website list at the right side of this blog)
    9. Want to start now? Visit your neighborhood nursery.
    10. Did I mention have fun? Gardening can be fun, involve your friends and family and enjoy the journey.
