The Wait to Get Outside

 Oh, just like the Agave plants, the Fig trees and other tenders that wait patiently inside, we are all ready to bust out of our pots and get back into the great outdoors. Unfortunately this lingering winter storm may mean a slower start to spring, which is only days away. As Ralph Waldo Emerson, a man who knew a thing or two about New England weather profoundly stated, “Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.”

For all those impatient gardeners, a wake-up session may be necessary. These late season storms are fairly typical. But just in case your memory is shaky, here’s one from the archives to help you remember.

Yes, this is a nudge and a reminder for the itchy gardener. Adopt the pace of nature if you’re just waiting to get outside. And if you need more tips, photos or ideas to inspire you, grab a cup of cocoa and browse through the Annie archives. Happy shoveling, snow piles that is but soon to be our favorite – the garden soil.

And don’t forget to practice that same patience on the roads - steady and slow.
