Due to the cold and wet, I have not been able to do anything in my garden. I have not even been able to break any ground.
Judging from what I see around the area, many other gardeners and farmers are in the same boat.
March came in like a lion and has stayed like a lion for most of the month.
My neighbor brought me a mosquito plant yesterday, so that I might be rid of the pesky little critters. The easy-to-grow mosquito plant emits a fragrance that keeps mosquitoes away! The only catch is you must rub or crush the leaves to release the scent.
The daffodils that grow along the front of my house have put forth blooms and my tulips lived through the winter, remarkably enough, though they seem to have suffered a bit of wilting in that vicious cold we had a few weeks ago.
Warm weather cannot get here fast enough for me. I maintain a small garden in the back. Enough red Indiana homegrown tomatoes for the hubby and me. Although we do not have a favorite, we tend to always plant one or two Big Boy tomato plants. I enjoy the taste of fried green tomatoes for lunch, but he has yet to appreciate this delicacy, leaving me his share.
