Weather forecast is a week of 40 degrees for the next week. This snow will go. Talking to a lot of people who are ready for spring. So am I! Tired of the snow. Thankful winter didn't really start until January but those of us who don't ski, snowmobile, or ice fish, etc. are ready for this white stuff to be gone. Soon this below...
...will look like this...ready for planting.
Then after a little work, planting seeds, and some watering, you get veggie plants. This looks like lettuce and radishes.
A little water, sunshine, weeding, a few weeks and love....In this plot there are green beans and cucumbers on the trellises, marigolds to attract pollinators, onions, zucchini and tomatoes. Report is that Marlon and Deb had great yields of veggies to enjoy this winter.
Depending on what you planted and when, at some point in the season you will start harvesting. You can enjoy fresh veggies or flowers that you have grown. The veggies below came from our food pantry plot and a couple of personal plots and were headed for delivery at the Spring Green Community Food Pantry.
Registration is now open for the rental of garden plots. Over the next few weeks I will be posting blogs about starting your own garden either in your backyard or at the Community Garden. hope the info helps.
Brrrr...It's cold out there. Thought we had missed the Polar Vortex for this year, but surprise! I drove by the Gardens today. The perennial flower beds were buried beneath drifts from the recent snows and high winds. It's going to take awhile for those drifts to disappear.
As we continue to hibernate in our warm homes this next week, thoughts will undoubted drift toward Spring. Jimmy the Groundhog from Sun Prairie, WI said we would have an early Spring. Only time will prove him right or wrong. So, to get you through until the temps rise, here are a few spring blooms from our the 2020 perennial bed.
Sounds like above freezing weather soon!
