Is it spring yet? Garden projects to keep you busy while it's still cold outside

If you’re anything like me, I’m sure you’ve spent your fair share of time between November and now staring longingly out the window or wandering the garden in every frigid condition, bundled and waiting, crouching, poking and prodding in the hopes that some magical (if not improbable) bit of green is lingering just below the surface. To say we’ve all been dying to get outside and start planting already is probably the understatement of the century!

With winter officially behind us—at least on paper—and new gardening and seed catalogs arriving at our doorsteps (seemingly by the pound), resisting the urge to embrace that one-off 60 degree day and surrender your beloved plants and tender seedlings to the earth can be quite the challenge. I mean seriously, how can we be expected to just sit idly by and wait for spring?!

Well, there’s no need to fret just yet! March and April may be a bit early to work the ground for most plants, but there’s quite the laundry list of to-dos you can focus on now that will get your creative juices flowing and have your beloved garden looking and performing at its best come May.

Garden Planning

Trust me, I know. Come February, the thought of slogging through another several months of winter stuck indoors is just plain brutal. However, it’s never too early to begin dreaming up a plan for your space!
