“Well, the weather outside is frightful” – No, wait, this is not the case in 2020. Here we are in early January and we are having some nice weather and temperatures that allow us to get outside into our gardens and enjoy ourselves with our beloved plants.
I always love sharing the temperature of our soil. As of January 3, our soil temperature is 50 degrees. It didn’t hurt having a record warm day four days earlier with 73 degrees. Another added bonus for this time of year is that we are having some good, timely rainfall to keep our soil moist for our plants. A common gardening question this time of year is “can I still plant?” Because of our current soil temperature and rainfall, my answer to this common planting question is a resounding YES!
January is NATIONAL GARDEN CATALOG MONTH – for a good reason. Winter is an excellent time to sit down and put onto paper some of your garden plans for the upcoming spring season. Spring will be here before we know it. Matter of fact, as of January 3, we are exactly 77 away from the official start of spring (March 20).
Whatever the weather and regardless of where you live, January marks the start of another garden year. We made it to 2020. Make it a great gardening year for yourself! Somehow, any gardening disappointments that you experienced last year are vanishing as we look ahead and plan our gardening strategy for 2020.
HAPPY GARDENING!! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
PLANT A LITTLE HAPPINESS!!!!!
