Winter Gardening Dreams While the garden is under many inches of snow, we have already begun the 2019 season. Our first garden potluck at the 2019 season. No surprise that this gardening group loves enjoying food together. Even in January, we enjoy pesto with garden basil, greens, and garlic. Whiling away winter planning the garden. Those who can’t do—read about it. At least until the ground thaws! Sammy the Serpent loves seed sorting, as long as he’s the center of attention. (He always is.) Renee’s Garden generously contributed many seeds we need.
