…and so little to do in the garden. I actually attempted to rid one of my future flower beds of weeds but realized the rediculosity of my endeavor when the plants just broke off in my hands. Did I mention it was 22 degrees? There is such a things as futility.
A friend of mine is plunging into the Master Gardeners course at our local extension and I crave the possibility of doing this someday but now is not the time. Between homeschooling, work, home renovation, restarting my own gardens and a household to manage, this goal has to wait. I am so looking forward to diving into my new dirt this year though! The UT extension website has an incredible resource, free for the copying. Check out your free 2018 gardening calendar here: https://extension.tennessee.edu/publications/Documents/W436.pdf
Not a Tennessee gardener? Check out your local Agricultural Extension for fantastic resources. I’m getting ready to use my local office to have my soil tested. There’s no use fertilizing dirt that doesn’t need it or using the wrong materials.
