January at Garden on Sherlock Street. Not a lot to share.
Hopefully, the plants outside are surviving our crazy temperature swings. We've been below zero and up to almost 60 degrees Fahrenheit so far this month. We've only gotten a little snow and ice. We've had days of crazy winds. Like blowing dust kind of winds. Nothing has blown out of the garden, but I sure have picked up a lot of trash that has blown into the garden.
I continue to feed the wildlife. The squirrels and birds sure like our feeders and water bowls.
I am mostly hanging out in the house with the plants I brought in last fall, the house dwellers who live inside year round. a hyacinth bulb sprouting in a vase and the garden catalogs.
Doing a little planning for the 2014 growing season.
I need more pea fences to use for things other than peas. Those are ordered.
I want some drought tolerant plants for the bed just off the patio. Selections have been made. Mulling over the choices before making the order final.
Vegetables beds need to be planned. I have some seeds from last year which should still be good, but many will need to be replaced. Not looking for anything new necessarily. Just needing to restock the seed supply. Time to get out the seed box and get serious about where everything will get planted.
On the home front, we are slowly working on the master bedroom remodel. Have I mentioned that I hate sanding? I'm also doing some decluttering. When I'm inside more looking at all our stuff, I start to reorganize things and clear out the unneeded items. Anything still in good condition gets donated to a variety of organizations in our community that can use them or resell them to support their missions. And, I'm shredding a lot of papers.
That's the January report from Garden on Sherlock Street. Hope all is well with you!
