It is the final stretch as we head toward Christmas. The weather has not been helpful, with gardening or doing anything outdoors. With all the snow and ice it has been hard to get around, anywhere. The extreme cold has turned some of my plants into mush. All of the soft stemmed plants are drooping and the woody stems are looking pretty beat up as well.
Oh well. All I can do is to take a walk outside between snow showers and make sure they are all protected. And Iím not just talking about protection from the elements; Iím also talking about protecting them from sledders and the kids making snowmen in your yard. Stepping on your plants during this cold could permanently damage or destroy them. And according to the weathermen it will be very cold for a few more days (and to think winter is just starting!) Check out the Garden Time blog this week to hear about Judy dealing with Chicago weather, Producers Jeff and Therese, traveling to Florence in Italy and get tips for taking care of your local bird population.
Happy Holidays from Garden Time!
Wishing you the best of the holiday season! Therese Gustin, Production Assistant; William McClenathan, Co-Host; Judy Alleruzzo, Co-Host; Jeff Gustin, Owner and Producer.
