A Day In Spring…..

_herbsHere it is a day in Spring, Mother nature has taken a turn to surprise us with cold brisk days. When gardening is not possible outdoors, indoor garden herbs can be started. Herbs are easy to grow with many varieties to choose from. Herbs can be used in cooking as well as drying for their room filling scent. Deciding on what herbs to grow may be the hardest part.
Clip herbs with clean clipping scissors, bunch 4-6 stems and tie with a piece of twine on ends(rubber bands can be used) while allowing enough twine to tie to air dry. After bunching hang up in a warm ventilated place, not in direct sunlight. Herbs can be stored in containers or used as decoration.

Now could also be a good time to put on gloves and transplant houseplants that may need a larger container.  Fertilize as well.. Just as when outside in the garden, remember to clean your hand tools after use.

 Spring is here even if the temperatures haven’t followed, Mother Nature is on her own schedule.  Daffodil are beginning to bloom just as Easter approaches.   Sometimes all we can do is go with the flow and enjoy what is happening in the here and now.  The sun is playing peek-a-boo as the wind moves through the bare branches that gently sway in the cold spring breeze.  Yes, Spring is here!  Until later, El
