Yes, I have been hibernating a little bit. I have also left debris in my garden that still needs to be cleaned out! With Chrismas around the corner, remember that if you canned anything this is a GREAT time to share your bounties with family, friends, teachers, coworkers and donating to fundraisers.
I gift canned goods each year to teachers. It is appreciated by them as well as their families and it doesn’t cause clutter in their lives. And let’s face it, in these tough times, food really hits the heart, soul and the stomach at a budget friendly cost.
I just got my seed savers exchange catalog for planning next year’s garden. ALREADY! So, NOW is the time to hit your library and check out all the books you can on growing vegetables and planning a garden for refreshing your mind and to help you plan out next year’s garden. Maybe you want to start a garden? add something or some space to an existing garden plan? Do it now because in late february you won’t be able to find these books (someone will have beaten you to it!). Besides you’ll want to know what seed you want to start indoors too – you will start this in february perhaps….
