Pre-Spring Jitters

Bob Fairbairn

January through March are the months that give most gardeners the jitters. You know, the catalogs, searches on line, seed exchanges and so on, all give you the itch to put something in the ground. Well here are some things that you can do now, that will help scratch that itch. 

Register for a class somewhere. Garden centers, University Extension Services, garden clubs and so on have many opportunities for you to hone your knowledge of gardening. You may be planning to take a vacation south, find a botanic garden in the area to see what is happening there. Or maybe you will be visiting Disney World in Florida or Disneyland in California, did you know they have garden tours that you can sign up for? That would be a special treat. 

Winter projects could also be trying your hand at making troughs and other containers for gardening. Or maybe learn how to make your own tomato baskets that will better fit your garden.

So as you can see, the ideas can really come to mind so look around and have some fun learning and doing something new. Your garden will reward you with more color and veggies then you can imagine.
