Want to grow some beautiful, useful stuff this Spring? No problem. I've got your back. I'm not afraid to try things beyond my gardening ability, but there are some things you just CAN'T screw up around here.
Love to garden and meet others who share your passion? Come to the Bozeman Public Library on Saturday April 1st starting at noon for the 2nd annual Seed Swap. But there's so much more than just a seed swap!
Spring has official begun and Cardinal Climbers starts are doing well in a sunny living room window. Bozeman's never ending struggle of trying to balance a short growing season and starting things too soon inside is a fun challenge for me.
Again this year, I can't resist. Starting a few seeds - some will still, some won't. Basil to be practical and a few flowers just to see what happens. Our true growing season is a long way off but "babying" a few plants is an incredibly effective winter therapy.
It never fails. As soon as winter begins, I start daydreaming about gardens blooming and pots full of fragrant herbs on the front porch. However, we've got a ways to go before seeds should even be started. Didn't stop me from ordering a bunch of seeds for the upcoming season though!
I love being outside planting things, maintaining the lawn and enjoying flowers bloom all Spring and Summer. Come Fall, however, it's time to put things to bed and it isn't nearly as much fun. Unless you cheat, every single year.
It's funny how every year is completely different. Some years I have giant sunflowers. This year I have 2 that are no taller than 18 inches. This year had to be kept simple because of gardening time restraints.
