The start of the 4th season. Always funner when you have a new canvas to decorate.

Spring is right around the corner. Are you ready for spring planting? What will you be planting this spring?


Happy New Year every one. Now that the snow is on the ground and every thing is put to bed, we can start thinking of Spring! Now's the time to think about what you want to do for Spring plantings. Container pots and or ground beds. I always say: better to be prepared then not at all. But I do have a feeling that there may not be enough of items this year. Or not available at all. I could be wrong. Listening through the grape vine of some shortages/cancellations, makes me think we will have a harder time finding things this year. So just some thing to keep in the back of your mind, when you venture out this Spring.


Just in. The state of Minnesota has just listed the Burning bush to the noxious w**d list. You will have 3 more years and then it will no longer be available.


Now's the time to create your winter pots. Unfortunately Mother Nature decided to bring winter temps early. If your pots are frozen, bring them in to thaw out. It may take a few days. If you can't move the pots you could put a bag of soil on top of the frozen soil and insert your greens in to the bag. No, it's not the same and you will not be able to make it tall, but at least it's something. You can also cover the soil bag with a black garbage bag so it is not as noticeable.

Hey everyone. I know your all going stir crazy being coped up, but this is Minnesota and it is to early to start your planting. For those of you who have already planted annuals and tender vegetables, you will want to cover those this weekend. The forecast has frost in it. Use sheets to cover those items up and then uncover them the next morning.After 8 am. If you planted in pots and there easy to move, just put them in the garage over night. I would wait tell after the 18th to plant and keep an eye on the weather. And most of all, when your at the garden center's please be patient, kind, and responsible. Follow the guide lines they are trying to follow for you and their staffs safety. Getting all upset is not going to help or change things. We are all in the same boat. Happy planting.


Now's the time of year to start thinking pansies. Plant your own planters or ground beds. Add p***y willow, or curly willow, or blooming spring branches to your pansies pots. Or buy all ready made bowls. Most local garden centers are offering on line orders with curb side pick ups. Just check their web page. Happy Spring planting!
