So far, we've made it through the winter storms with no problems. The small snowfalls were easy to clean up. This last storm sounded more ominous, but didn't develop as advertised. We had only a coating of snow, a very brief period of sleet, and then mostly rain. The yard is soggy again.
The shop is open winter hours in January, February and March; Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 9am to 5pm. It's a great time of year to plan your garden, read about herbs or try a new herbal project. We have ideas and materials you need in the shop!
I always describe January as our slow time. But, I'm working on spring writing, organizing the shop and now, weekly seeding for the spring season. It is such a pleasure to go to the basement when the wind is howling, temperatures are dropping, and the sun shines only feebly, and see tiny seedlings growing.
They are tiny now, but they'll be sturdy little plants by spring!
