Tip of the Month:
It’s freezing! Winter is a time of contraction, hibernation and far slower underground growth due to far lower temperatures. Thus, there really aren’t many vegetables that grow well/thrive in these cold conditions and the rain should hopefully take care of watering for us.
July is perhaps the month in the year with the least need for human involvement in food gardening.
So, here is this month’s gardening tip: Stay warm, and perhaps go through old clothes and bedding to pass some of what you do not need anymore on to the many who could literally be freezing to death on the streets. Let’s share the warmth this Winter!
