Around this time of winter, after the holidays, people often tend to get “cabin fever.”
Gardners are especially affected, itching to get back to the dirt. Fortunately, seed and plant catalogs arrive to save the day. The Internet has endless catalogs from suppliers, local and global. Personally, being old school, I like to find them in my ‘real’ mailbox along with gardening magazines.
A great way to warm up a cold, dreary day is planning a strategy for spring. Dreaming up ways to improve existing landscapes, or starting a new vegetable garden, or finding ways to outsmart the squirrels is rejuvenating and gives the illusion that spring is in the air.
