I am finally finding a way to beat the cold, blah weather...browsing through the Gurneys Seed Catalog and dreaming of warmer days ahead.
It all started with the Sunday paper and seeing a flier for a Blueberry Plant! If you have been with me since the blog-beginning, you might remember that last summer was my introduction to gardening and we used some old window boxes, set on our patio, that worked like a charm. The feasting on green peppers, sweet pea pods, basil and tomatoes was fabulous. We are going to use those window boxes again, but I wanted to expand my green thumb horizons by taking on berries this year. Hubby said "Um, no" when I approached him about starting some various berry vines growing on our fence line..."too close to the grass and mowing...and we CANNOT be encouraging the @%&*! rabbits, they are rodents! And they MULTIPLY quickly Sonya! That is NOT a MYTH!" Somebody has bunny issues. And moles. If you are keeping a list, we don't like moles.
But having POTS OF BERRIES! What a fabulous idea! No grass will be harmed in the process and if rabbits want to swarm the brick patio to share in a berry picnic, I am fine with that...I think.
Looking through the catalog has me drooling at all the types of potted berries we can raise.
How do you beat the January cold?
