This Can't Be February
Roses this time of year? My roses have been blooming for over a month.
The temperatures have been unseasonably warm. It reached 79 degrees yesterday.
And the rains have been good for several weeks.
So, you might be asking, "What is the problem?" It is the time of the year I prune back the old growth of last year. I just don't have the heart to cut the roses back with so many buds on them. As you can see, the foliage is a bit scraggly, still handing on from last season.
I will prune them....just not today.
After reading Ngo Family Farm post from yesterday, I decided I would do the same and list the "new" varieties of seeds I will be trying for the 2012 garden. Check out my list by clicking on Garden 2012. You can also find it at the top of this page under the blog header.
Don't forget to also check out Jamie's blog, Ngo Family Farm. She posts beautiful photo's and has great ideas, including her planting list for this year.
