The Gardener’s Hibernation

Our state of dormancy is almost over and our winter rest, well; consider it a soon-to-be distant memory. Now is the time to reenergize and prepare for those outdoor opportunities that appear quickly once the snow melts and the ground softens. The Maverick Mindset states it best when charging the pumps and speeding up that slow metabolic rate. “Do something, anything. Move your feet. Your body will follow. Don’t sit and let life happen to you. Participate. Take action. Do it now.” This message could be relevant to any portion of your life but it applies quite nicely when it comes to gardening. Hmmm - interesting parallel. Life – garden. Don’t miss out on it. Be ready. Be prepared. Your spring senses are awakening.

Even if you can’t see spring yet or don’t quite feel it in your bones, the signs are there. An unknown author gives some wise advice on how to awaken from our winter slumber. “If people were meant to pop out of bed, we’d all sleep in toasters.” Don’t be the 3-second Pop Tart. Start spring gardening slow and easy. The inspirational thought for the day is by JoJo Jensen, Dirt Farmer Wisdom, 2002. “Without enough sleep, we all become tall two-year-olds.” This is the emergency broadcast system sending the 60-second warning. The snooze button is beeping - spring is almost here!
