It's January - What to do in the Garden?

It's January, 

What to Do in the Garden?


For me January is the time to dream about and plan my garden. Much of the mail or online ordering can be done now.  There are some outside activities however...


1. Check to make sure that all your  plant protection devices are still in place and working well.
