For January, we are happy to report, you can take the month off. For the most part. 

Consider the following:

- Reduce watering of most indoor plants. 9 out of 10 problems with indoor plants are the result of over watering. Take a vacation from watering, use the extra time to listen to our biweekly podcast.

- Order seeds for your veggie and flower garden. Fresh seeds are on the retail seed racks now and last year many seeds sold out early.  We expect a similar experience this season! Order a copy of the Veseys catalog to start your shopping from home.

- Join online horticultural club meetings. Gardeners are social creatures and so are you (probably)... especially in winter! Bring your questions and an inquisitive mind: many answers are to be found here!

- Read, listen, organize your garden photos from last summer and put up your gardening antennae: winter is when we learn and deepen our horticultural knowledge, not to mention create a plan for our 2021 garden!

Relax, light the fire, enjoy a wonderful, quiet time to reflect.
