Wordless Wednesday: Start Your Engines!

The time has come to plant your garden, whether indoors or out. Start seeds, amend soils, and bring dreams into reality this month. Soon you’ll taste the rewards of today’s toil. But it’s not really toil, it’s a labor of love. May this Wordless Wednesday inspire your gardening activities this week.

Loquats are ripening as the days grow longer.
Borage and nasturtiums
Volunteer Borage and Nasturtiums provide habitat, pollen and nectar for beneficial insects.
Root veggies
Parsnips and black radishes are still growing as winter comes to a close. You can grow these in spring if you have cool temperatures.

As the days grow longer and temperatures warm up (and #Februburied comes to an end), throw out wildflower seeds, turn your compost pile, and make way for spring.
