2nd Quarter Moon Waxing in Cancer

Celtic Tree Month of Ash

Rain, ice, cold

The weather turned wintry again this past week, with a series of storms coming through. None of the snow accumulations was as much as predicted, thank goodness. We are supposed to get another foot Friday night into Saturday.

On the garden front, the bulbs are coming up on the porch, although nothing’s bloomed yet. The indoor plants are fine, although I have to water them  more often, because the heat to keep the house warm dries them out quickly.

I finally ordered some seeds from Eden Brothers: mostly flowers and medicinal herbs. I ordered Wormwood, angelica, calendula, marshmallow, St. John’s wort, Valerian, and two kinds of Zinnias. They should ship this week and arrive next week, so I can plant. It’s a little late, but that’s the way it goes. I will buy culinary herbs as plants when the garden center opens later this month.

I’ve missed the window to start poppies, so I will put that off again this year. I need to order some other seeds in the coming weeks, and then get everything planted. I’m going to try different potting soil; I think the choice I made last year for potting soil wasn’t very good.

I’m looking forward to hyacinths blooming.

What’s going on with your garden?

    Outdoors, my snowdrops are blooming as are a few crocus. Indoors, I have a lot of basil, chervils, and a little parsley and dill. We also had 6 cherry tomatoes in the wedge salad we had with our mac and cheese for dinner. Hubby grew the tomatoes in the basement with a grow light.
