“A Hard Month”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana
February can be the hardest month for gardeners. Here, in the South, the weather is cold one day and warm the next. Last night we had a hard freeze, and tomorrow it is supposed to be in the high 60’s, and by Saturday, we will be in the mid 70’s. We never know what to expect. In the north, by contrast, this year has been unusually cold and snowy. I know those gardeners would love to have a day of our warm weather just to be out in their gardens. One big help for us is that we all know that spring won’t be too far off now. At least that is something we can all look forward to.
