January may possibly be the easiest month to do gardening chores. I think I said that last month, but this time I mean it!

This month I’m going to hunker down and bury myself under a mound of catalogues and magazines, read over the Farmer’s Almanac, and start dreaming about my garden in the spring.

I’ll also continue to fill the birdfeeders and put out suet.

Other than those few things, that’ll be it for this month.

Happy Gardening!

Blessings and joy!

Sarah
