Garden club meeting tonight at Parkway Cafeteria (formerly Richard's)Posted Friday, February 19, 2010, at 9:55 AM
Rosemary keeping ahead of the snow and catnip ready to get going
I know several of us will be bring seed & plant catalogs. Most of mine can leave with you, but a few I am wanting to order from, although I am already running late.
Today appears to be the first day of the year that will really get the green thumbs itching. I have been scrounging firewood and have not let my wood heater cool off for close to a month. That is a long streak for us.
I will put off a run for more wood until tomorrow since the rain looks like it will reciprocate.
A few days ago my rosemary was fighting to keep above the snow and yesterday I found the first catnip coming on strong. Our cats certainly appreciated the treat. I may bring some to our colony down the road. They are all doing well, except for the patriarch who seems to continuously get beat up.
Tonight seems like a good time to talk about seed starting. I will throw something together for a computer presentation to help us touch on the topics. I believe Richard is also bring some of his favorite books and of course some seed catalogs.
I could go on and on, but time has been running short lately.
