This is about the time of year when I'm so sick of cold and snow that my mind dives forward to planning my spring and summer gardens.
Of course mine will be container gardens. I'm thinking of constructing a small, maybe 4 x 4 feet (perhaps a foot tall) wooden box for veggies. Don't know if that will get done or not.
Right now it's a mess out there on the patio. Piles of leaves underneath snow, which hopefully will melt soon. I will have my work cut out for me.
So what do I for sure want to plant this year?
Herbs are always on my list. Many also keep insects at bay. Of course I'm anxious to see what will come up that I planted last summer. The herbs and perennials.
More vines. Hoping some of them will make it through winter.
Annuals for quick color.
And probably more ornamental grasses. I'd love to find muhly grass.
So what's on your list?
