February 14th is Garden Cleaning

The days are quickly getting longer as ground hog day approaches we will soon know if we have six more weeks of winter days ahead. While the weather is still keeping plants dormant it is a good time to clean up.

Extra time a care for the up coming spring is very near I usually start a clean up on a warm day. The evening are still very cold but, day light sun is warming things up a bit.

It is also a good time to start thinking about some of the cold weather vegetables that do very well in the cooler weather to get in soon. Leafy greens, broccoli, spinach are good as well as cabbage plants.

I would like to wash my yard down with something to clean things up too a good reference is Jerry Baker for this job. In addition for this years project get our back-yard certified with the National Wildlife Federation as to be more Eco-friendly to my surrounding habitat.
