January in the Garden


There is not much going on in my garden this time of year.


A languishing snowman.


Bare raspberry canes.


Everything is covered in snow and ice and it only gets above freezing a few hours most days.


Sunflower seeds for the winter birdies enjoyment. Food is scarce for them in these conditions.


I’m planning on replacing the plastic on the garden cover and pulling some of the dead stuff.  Not much else to do outside but shovel snow.

If you look closely in the very back of the garden box…


There are still green living plants back there.  Isn’t that amazing! They are sheltered enough to not be plantsicles in this harsh weather.


Some green is peaking out in the strawberries as well, but other than that not much else growing.


So, I’m putting up my feet, fixing some Hot Apple Cider, perusing my seed catalogs and dreaming/scheming for the garden in the spring.
