Spring is the season of hope and growth. You begin dreaming of the beautiful blooms that are to come. You start to see those first signs of green after a long winter. During the first few weeks of spring, there are measures you can take to encourage a successful gardening season. March is the month of preparation and planning.
This week, we are expecting at least 18 inches of snow to fall in Massachusetts. It’s hard to have patience when the ground is completely covered and you can’t see all of your pretty spring bulbs. I’m focusing on the fact that this will all change very shortly. In the meantime, there are seeds to be planted, tools to be cleaned and visions to be mapped out. This is a great time to shop, beat the rush and start gathering your supplies. It’s never fun to be looking for what you need when everything is picked over.
