  • Planning ahead, order seed

    Like many gardeners this time of the year I, too, have been spending cold winter evenings by the fire with a good catalog.  
    The seed catalogues fill the mailbox and I barely make it up the driveway without taking a peak at what’s offered for 2015.
    Two years ago, I made a procrastinating mistake and waited too long to place my onion and potato order. By the time I got around to it, all of my selections were sold out for the season.

  • Snow, plants and deicing agents

    We have been trudging about in shin-deep snow for days now and the subzero temperatures have kept us on our toes as we try to keep livestock out of the wind and supplied with hay and water.
    Snow has an insulating effect, which is particularly useful when we do have frigid temperatures.  
    Ground level snow will actually protect the roots and crowns of perennial and woody plants but you may notice a little burn above the snow level when it comes to broadleaf evergreens.
