Tuesday Tidbits

David Viscott pointed out the importance of following up with loose tidbits. “Lists today are a way of trying to get through the day, because we are losing a sense of time.” With this January thaw soon to be gone (Tuesday evening/Wednesday prediction is snow/sleet is on the way) we may well be losing a sense that it still is wintertime. So let’s keep winter moving forward by carrying that garden checklist in one hand. Here are a few items we should be checking off the list now if they aren’t already done:

Order your fruit trees.
Order your seed potatoes and seed garlic, too.
Pay attention to any rodent damage and nip it in the bud. Install protective collars. This is primarily for fruit and ornamental trees, especially when they are young but you want to give all your plants materials a once over during this January thaw.
Save a date for some interesting lectures, workshops or talks. Greg has two coming up in early spring. (April 20th and April 27th – two Saturday afternoons to fill with two very different topics plus interesting places so keep those dates free.)

So that’s it in a Tuesday tidbit; kind of like a New York minute. It’s a short blog post to kick your Tuesday morning off.
