The Dirt - January - 2020
What I've loved, followed and saved:
https://www.instagram.com/josephmassie/ there is an image of a tablescape using green and white ammi majus that is gorgeous. Let's make one of our own this summer.
https://www.bowoodfarms.com/ in St. Louis. The cafe is getting a face lift this winter and I can't wait to see the new look. One of my necessary city stops. They have a garden center cat so they are for real. (all garden centers and bookstores must have a cat as part of the rating system)
https://digitalcommons.usu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=3063&context=extension_curall Sustainable Manure and Compost Application: Garden and Micro Farm Guidelines https://www.instagram.com/usu_smallfarms/ Dr. Melanie Stock is providing much needed research for small farms and specifically flower farms with a grant from the ASCFG. The soil in Utah is much different from Illinois, but some really great information here.
https://www.wandawega.com/ to totally get lost down a beautiful rabbit hole, Camp Wandawega is a dream.
https://www.botanicalinterests.com/product/Sowing-Guides And finally, I love Botanical Interests seeds, art and the amount of information on a seed packet is astounding. The entire interior of the packet is filled with specific growing information. The link is to their sowing guides that help build my seed starting calendar each year. It took forever to pick just one seed packet example. You should sow some borage.
And happy sowing and Imbolic! Half way to spring!
wide-ranging; well being and mindfulness, nature, wildlife and gardens; micro adventures, exploring and the outdoors. The simple things with a hopeful dose of wit, intelligence and substance.
