Midwinter Merriment: Be classy!

Here it is – a countdown til spring. From now until the first day of spring, I will post ways to make the dreary days of midwinter a little more merry.

Day 21: Take a gardening class.

21_Take_a_ClassThis is the best time to learn something new. Put your pent-up gardening energy into learning some new skills for your garden this spring. I’m enrolled in a 10-hour beekeeping class through the Puget Sound Beekeepers’ Association. I may not be able to start my own hive this year, but I’ll be able to learn some new skills and get my beekeeping fix in this class and at the association’s apiary work parties. I can hardly wait!

Here are some classes that have caught my eye:

Spots are filling up fast for my upcoming Spring Fling! In fact, March 30th is almost sold out! There are two more spots available that day and a few more on Sunday, April 7th! Sign up and bring a friend! There are even a few mother-daughter garden nerds that are coming! I wish my mom could be at my class! Love!

Day 22: Plant bare root.
Day 23: Sign up for Seattle Seedling’s Spring Fling!
Day 24: Plant primroses.
Day 25: Get yourself a doughnut and make it “for here.”
Day 26: Frequent the Farmers’ Market
Day 27: Eat Root Vegetables Disguised as Cake!
