January Garden

Standard

Mid-January: The snow had melted but it was very cold again, lows in the 20s and highs in mid-30s. The ground was frozen even after days of temps in the 40s and 50s. Amazingly, there was the teensiest bit of green here and there, signs of life even in January. We are months away from planting, so I dream while perusing seed catalogs and work out in my head where I want to plant what. Here are some photos of my January garden.

    • I know. These are the winter doldrums when time seems to stand still and it feels as though spring will never come. It is dreaming time (and seed starting time for some varieties). I sure am glad that I have school, knit and sew.

    • I could not believe the blueberry buds. My forsythia are covered with buds as well. I think I’ll cut some branches to force this week. Those warm temps last week really woke up the trees and shrubs.
