Gardening For a Busy Summer

I read an article the other day, about the garden’s of a woman who focused on four season gardening, making sure there’s year round interest. Her beds were absolutely beautiful, and at first I found myself thinking, “Wow, I wish I could have that”, but I know myself well enough, winter is my down time; to reflect over the previous year, pour over seed catalogues and their great pictures, shovel snow instead of weed. One important thing to consider when planning your garden is how you want to use it, and when you’re going to be around to care for it. While spring, summer and fall are the times I’m most interested in gardening, I have a friend who spends most of his free time in the summer at his cottage up north. My recommendation to him: Don’t garden for the summer, you’re not going to be around to enjoy the show anyway, be a two to three season gardener instead. Next week, on being a spring gardener.
