Taking Stock – Seeds, Successes and More – By the time spring gardening rolls around, most gardenerds have amnesia. We no longer remember what worked and what didn’t work in last year’s garden. We also don’t remember what seeds we used up last season. February is the time to take stock of supplies and review notes from last year. Do you have enough seed starting mix for those trays? Did you run out of Lemon cucumber seeds? What really happened to those tomatoes last year? Do you need to buy new rat traps? Do all your gloves have holes in them? Take time to take inventory and make a list of supplies needed for the coming growing season. As you plan out your spring garden, review seed catalogs and incorporate a few new varieties to try. Visit the Gardenerd Trusted Resources page for help finding supplies and seeds for spring.
