All though the garden is dormant at this time of year under a fresh layer of snow, a lot is going on behind the scenes. Once again all the plots are accounted for and we’re looking to welcome the new gardeners joining us this year. In the near future we’ll do another round of soil tests. The idea is to set up a yearly regular pattern of testing to slowly account for all the plots in the garden and get a good picture of our soil health. We have to be aware that individual plots differ as people grow different plants and compost differently.

It’s time to start thinking about what you want to plant this season. Adventurous gardeners could start seeding herbs and leafy greens inside for an early harvest. Once the threat of snow has passed we’ll be doing some cleaning up in the garden, stay tuned!
