All the flowers of all the tomorrows are in the seeds of today. Swedish Proverb
For our readers who are gardeners, it’s been a long spring with cooler than normal temperatures. The rule of thumb, in mountainous terrain like Vermont and Colorado, by Memorial Day weekend you should be good to go. Dig in the dirt and plant till your heart is content. The risk of seedlings being hit by frost should be over.
If you are looking for a little gardening inspiration or ideas for garden design, visit the blog of my favorite food and garden writer, Ellen Ecker Ogden. She keeps busy year round with all things healthy and wholesome.
Speaking of all things healthy and wholesome, it’s never to early to begin to sow seeds of virtue in children! So teach them the spirit of helping others by letting them dig and get dirty this spring as you plot and plant your garden. Help youngsters understand how food gets from ground to table by involving them in your little patch of Eden. Don’t have a yard? Support Community Supported Agriculture (community gardens) by getting your family involved.
