March Faves 2018 -- The Start of Spring

Mrs. A. Monthly Faves

March is the beginning of Spring which means the beginning of warmer weather and vegetable gardening.  For March Faves, let's take a glimpse at The Old Farmer's Almanac.

First on the list of faves is the Planting Calendar.  Enter your zip code into the location field and a Planting Calendar will pop up for your area.  You can print the calendar and even request email reminders for when to plant certain crops.  According to my location, I need to get my onions in the ground THIS week.

For my second fave, let's look at Sustainable Gardening Ideas.  10 Tips For An Eco-Friendly Garden gives tips about how to work with nature and not against it when landscaping or gardening.  It's a great article about choosing the proper plants, welcoming pollinators, and watering thoughtfully.

Every gardener should have a section for herbs, and I am so excited about having fresh herbs to cook with this year.  So for my third fave, I want to highlight a unique way to dry herbs using vintage door knobs as hangers.

Do you have gardening plans for this season?  Did you check out the location Planning Calendar and are you on schedule?  What do you think about those Vintage Door Knobs as hangers to dry herbs?  Can you think of any other vintage item that you could re-purpose for drying herbs?

    I like the door knobs for drying herbs, too. I don’t have any vintage door knobs, so I’ll be looking around my stash for something else with vintage style to use.

    Very interesting. I especially like the idea for drying herbs. Maybe I’ll try it.
