Winter gardening tips?

Do you have any winter gardening tips?

Yes. Think spring. When you do, you'll be ready for it. Here are some specifics, which should come as no surprise:

  • Put your summer garden to bed;
  • Reflect on the past year's gardening experience, taking note of your successes and failures to learn from them;
  • Dream about something new you'd like to do in the garden, research and plan for it, or forget about it if it won't work;
  • Peruse seed catalogs when they arrive in the mail, make a wish-list before you fill out the order forms, then face the fact you don't have room in your garden for all that, and shorten the list;
  • Clean and sharpen your tools so you won't be kicking yourself come spring because you didn't do it before;
  • Winterize your gas-powered tools, so you won't be kicking yourself come spring when you're taking them to the shop for carburetor repairs;
  • Continue adding to your compost pile;
  • Read blog articles at goGardenNow.blogspot.com.
