Jackie's spring garden in Michigancomments (15) February 1st, 2013 in blogs
The gardens we've been sharing lately have definitely gotten us yearning for summer, but today's garden might actually give us some hope that spring is around the corner. These photos are courtesy of Jackie Stasevich in Michigan. Jackie says, "My family home and garden is in rural west Michigan in a stand of mature mixed hardwood. I have a pretty shady spot in which to garden and I love the cool greenery in the summer. Spring is my favorite time in the garden as each day has some new treasure popping out of the ground. I am a local 4H poultry leader and have quite a few chickens, guinea fowl and a goose. Consequently, I also have some GREAT compost to use in my garden and the guineas are the best bug control. I'm obviously pining away for spring." Thanks, Jackie, for this little boost. Your garden is beautiful, and you have a gorgeous collection of woodland treasures. Groundhog day is TOMORROW, so we'll know soon if spring is on the way!
****Sincere thanks to everyone who sent me gardening tips earlier this week. The winner of the book 50 Ways to Kill a Slug was Ellen Garvey. Congrats, Ellen! The book is in the mail as we speak.
I'll be doing another book giveaway soon--stay tuned!
