Ok so I know its not "offically" spring (3 more days!)but after the B-E-A-U-tiful weather today, how can one not be excited about it? I was able to get down to the gardens and clear away some of the debris that was leftover from this fall and finish getting seeds started. The snow came so fast this year I wasn't quite able to get it all. While out and about cleaning I noticed a lot of green, a lot of bad but also some good! Some of the herbs are already starting to grow again and its a nice splash of good green. Some of you know about the bad green we have here, the Star of Bethleham. You can read more about that horrible stuff here. But, on to the good! The wonderful skunk cabbage is in bloom andthe coltsfoot flowers are up along the lakeshore. In the wildflower bed we have some hepatica peeking through and some waterleaf showing up. In another bed, # 23, there is a beautiful purple flower poking through the underbrush. I can not remember the name of it for the life of me so if you know it, let me know! For now, enjoy some of the pictures of the site from today.

Gearing up

We are starting to get things together for the upcoming Home & Garden shows in the area. Packaging seeds, making flyers and putting the finishing touches on the event guide to be ready for the shows. Come out and see what we have to offer at each of these events:

Fort Wayne Home & Garden Show:
March 3rd & 4th: 11a-9p
March 5th: 10a-9p
March 6th: 11a-5p
Memorial Coliseum

Kendallville Home & Garden Show:
March 12th: 10a-5p
March 13th: 10a-3p

As for me, I'm anxiously awaiting all this snow to finally melt away so I can get my hands dirty in the gardens again. It's going to be an exciting journey to watch it all start fresh in the gardens. I'm going to try not to mess it up too bad after all the hard work Martha put into it.
