Gardeners are a wonderful bunch of people who just can't seem to get enough dirt under their fingernails and still have lots of fun. February and March are the months when their fingers get really itchy to be in that soil and moving it about!

So What is a Gardener Supposed to Do Until Spring Arrives?Well I know that I have been spending the last couple of days with the seeds that I have saved from last year's plants that I really loved. I'm just checking that they are still looking good (they haven't got mold on them or rotted from being mishandled in the fall. So far my seed stash is looking great. The next thing that gets my attention is all my plant catalogues** from several different suppliers.
When I have exhausted all these lovely reminders of the season to come, I sit back and enjoy the musings from the Old Farmer's Almanac!
Wisdom, Planting Tips and Tricks, and so much more!
For many years, the Farmer's Almanac has been a source of tips and tricks, planting advice and so much more. Every gardener I know has either heard about it (and really wants a copy) or has a copy somewhere in their stash of garden related books. If you have a gardener or two in your family, I know that this little desk calendar from the people at the Farmer's Almanac, would be an asset to them. Filled with daily hints, facts, folklore and pictures of beautiful flowers, it will certainly brighten up a corner of their desk or workspace.
What I love about these Calendars is that they are each so lovely and even though we are already into the year 2019, the dates that have already gone by, are still pretty to look at and have some interesting or funny anecdotes on them.
Farmer's Almanac calendars are full of useful information too. When to trim plants, moon phases and schedules for planting and replanting too. This is one handy, beautiful and practical gift or just a necessary gardening tool like a new hoe or spade.
Dreaming about what is to come is something Gardeners at this time of year can really excel at. I know I have my visions and dreams in place!
