February in the garden can bring a little or a lot to do depending on where you live. It also can bring however much you want to put into it. As you can see in the picture above we had some sunshine and I am just getting started on come garden cloches. There is still a lot more to do to get ready for planting, beginning to think I need to hire a helper or two, any volunteers?
If you haven’t done the items on the list of January in the Garden, then you just have a longer list for February, there’s still time. This time of year there are things you can do indoors to get ready for gardening, so if it’s still below freezing and you have a foot of snow on the ground, you can start getting ready indoors.
Last week I saw my first daffodil poking up through the ground, that’s always one of the first signs to be reminded that Spring isn’t too far away. So looking forward to the sunshine and the longer days, somehow it gives me a new burst of energy to get the February in the Garden list done.
February in the Garden to do list:
We had a big wind storm a week or so ago, so our bird netting over the blueberry bushes needs to be repaired, just when we thought we had it built good and sturdy. It was a heck of a wind storm. So as you can see we have our work cut out for us. Weeds still to pull, soil to test and amend, and trees to prune.
Here’s hoping you’re getting a little sunshine and warmer weather to be able to get out and get your gardening on.
