Here it is, the end of January, and I can’t stop thinking about Spring. Undoubtedly, the 60 degree day we had on Saturday has something to do with it. I start wondering how large the crocus clumps will be this year, or where will the self seeded flowers start popping up? There is much surprise with Spring. I try to remember what tulips I added in the fall or if I tried anything new. Spring is just very exciting, plant wise.
Until it is actually time to start seeing some growth, I will have to spend my time flipping through seed catalogues and visualizing what I want to try new this year. One thing that may keep me occupied til late February, when I can start some of my seeds, is growing ginger inside. We use so much ginger, it would be wise to grow some ourselves. Also on my mind is to keep a garden journal, one that may be a little bland and scientific. Bloom times/types of flowers/movement of the sun through the season.
So, even though Spring is a little far away, I can keep busy….anxiously eager to start seeds….but busy.
