YET ANOTHER ROUND OF WINTER WEATHER
HELLO again from your Garden Daddy here at the garden home! I will never get the veggie patch re-structured and the new fencing project in place if this weather keeps up! Based on a weather report last week on the television program "AG DAY", this section of the country and especially our Zone 7 (Remember, I have mentioned that Madison County and this section of the 'Hub City' area of Tennessee are really in a zone all our own, often Zone 6, 7 & 8 all at once!) is in for below average temperatures over the next 90-days or so. Look for more of what we are getting now, as I also predicted early last fall. Winter weather like we have not seen here in many years. Snow, ice, sleet, freezing rain...just plain old nasty winter time is here and not looking to let up soon. We will have some mild days still before the official spring but not like we normally have had over the last many years.
I give you another peak at this garden home earlier today and leave you with this thought in mind for your daily gardening affirmation: "Every gardener knows that under the cloak of winter lies a miracle ... a seed waiting to sprout, a bulb opening to the light, a bud straining to unfurl. And the anticipation nurtures our dream."- Barbara Winkler
