Holiday garden projects
Hi Wisconsin garden buds,
Wow, you must all be busy getting ready for the holidays. Not much action on our forum.
Since it's such a beautyful day, I thought I'd ask; what kind of garden related projects are you doing for the holidays?
Here are some of mine:
Use the branches that were cut from the bottom of the christmas tree to decorate my outdoor pots.
Collect berries and seeds to make "bird Potpouri" Use as a decoration for awhile and then put in a shallow dish on the covered porch for them to eat.
Use some of the berries and pods to decorate the wreath.
Cut some branches to "deck the halls", too bad it's too cold here for boughs of Holly as that is my daughters name. I have tried to grow the suposidly hardy ones a number of times and they always die. An alternative though is "Holly leaved barberry" it looks a lot like holly.
Finish raking since we still have no snow.
Finish cutting down plants as they begin to look shabby
Finish shoveling compost into the greenhouse (since it's been so dry the pile is not frozen.
Start to mulch tender stuff.
I guess these aren't all holiday related, I'm still stuck on fall work. Now I should just get out there and do it instead of what the DH calls "playing" on the computer. Or...I could go skiing. Not that I don't have anything to do indoors either.
Hope you all have the happiest of holidays!
