From the Birdbath Garden
Later this week the weather report is calling for highs of 40 degrees. Much too cold for this gardener to enjoy significant time outdoors, especially one spoiled by 55-60 degree temperatures. A few minutes here and there are fine but long term projects and activities will be slowing down a bit while waiting for the occasional unseasonal and extremely welcome pleasant day that is known to pop up from time to time here in TN. To rephrase a cliche I am definitely a fan of fair weather. Since the doors and windows are mostly on the greenhouse I should be able to tinker with its construction during the cold days and get it ready for spring seed starting. There's a whole list of things I need to do to get the inside plant ready but I'll save that for another post. For now though I'll be spending one more pleasant day outdoors working on my project before the cold sets in for the week. December 21st is the first day of winter and it is approaching fast. It's time to accept the fact that the inevitable cold weather is coming, winter is coming!
What outdoor activities do you like to tackle in the winter?
