It is Feb. 5 and they are calling for it to be 73 degrees here in southeastern Virginia today. Might sound crazy, but in fact I have found this to be the crazy norm most years. We get warm spurts followed by very very sharp cold days or not, just depends.
All this means to serious gardeners is that stuff is growing out there on those warm days- both flowers and weeds–so don’t miss the opportunity to get out and work in the garden.
I actually planted some more hardy annual seeds yesterday in bare spots. What do I have to loose?
I am working on my seed starting calendar, and it is pretty crazy this year, we are growing a larger garden. My sister is coming out of the office and warehouse and joining me in the garden for the first time. We are doubling our production which is about 2/3 of what I was growing when I downsized a couple years ago.
Can’t get it out of my blood! I just love growing beautiful flowers for others and teaching them how to do the same!
Happy winter gardening!
