While Nature Sleeps...

More than 50 years ago my father bought me a gardening book that he found at the Newtown, Connecticut public library book sale.  The book, "How to Make a Vegetable Garden'. by Edith Loring Fullerton was published in 1905 and the accumulated photos and information gathered before the turn of the century.

I have thumbed through this book hundreds of times since as it evokes what gardening was like, both the plant culture and the size and importance of gardens in those times.

On the other hand, winter in norther New England is long and sometime about now, we begin to dream of what we will plant when the ground appears again.  The nearly two feet of snow that fell this week is not necessarily an indication of a late Spring.
