Planting a Garden With Snow on the Ground
We are in the blues times of the year, so activities should be picked that bring cheer. That is why putting up a tree now with lights could really help. One of the best ways to stop the blues is dig in dirt, by planting a garden. Yes I mean right now with snow on the ground! I noticed that pots were on super sale in hardware stores. If you can give up the window sill or counter space for a while, you could make holiday gifts of basil, cilantro, chives, oregano, parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. Imagine being able to make a Christmas meal with really fresh ingredients. It would be a less expensive gift with big impact, and very unlikely that anyone else will do it. Plus very helpful directions abound. This picture also comes with directions at all-about-container-gardening.
Gardening on any scale helps us and the environment. Symbolically a garden in the white house could really lead the world in planting gardens. Elenore Roosevelt planted a victory garden in the White House and by the end of the war, the US was getting 40% of its food from gardens.
