It's early January, the snow is finally falling nicely every
day so it can stop anytime. It's cold out and the only
things to do in the yard this time of year is feed the birds
, shovel snow and shovel snow. Seed catalogs are arriving by
the droves. Another month or two should see the arrival of
new iris catalogs as well. It's time to start planning and
ordering for next years flower or vegetable gardens.
Every year I say I will cut down on the vegetable garden,
but somehow can never resist starting some things like
lettuce, corn and of course, tomatoes. Next month I'll give
you a little schedule on when to start what seeds if you
want to start them indoors under lights. I set a light up in
the basement on a timer and it works fine to start the
seeds. Then I transfer them to the greenhouse.
This time of year is also a good time to repot the house
plants. Some of mine are in desperate need of attention,
especially repotting to larger pot
Happy New Year to everyone and see you at the next meeting.
