Winter Time

There is absolutely nothing to do in the garden but wait for sunshine and warmer weather.  Interestingly, the home improvement stores have had cold weather plants available such as collards, cabbage, broccoli, and some herbs.  I feel that those cold weather plants would interfere with the spring planting in north Florida.

It is brutally cold for Floridians who don't have long johns and insulated jackets brought with us when we moved from more frigid states.  I am not sure that you are able to buy those things in department stores in Florida.

It is too cold, even in the Sunshine State, to go out and work in the garden.  I did do that not too long ago just to get some exercise and I found that I was disturbing large and small frogs.  Excuse me!  I covered them up with soil and additional pine straw.  I do not want to disturb those helpful workers.

Until spring comes, dress in layers.  Keep an extra coat in the car as well as blankets.  Also keep a bag of cat litter in your car just in case you should run into a little bit of ice.  I addition, keep a small shovel in the car at all times.  You never know when that may come in handy.

You know better than I do how to take care of your selves in the cold weather, do it.  The weathermen is predicting 80 degrees F for the weekend!

Keep warm!
