Every year, without fail, I begin to despair that spring will follow winter. And yet, there are signs:
Ipheion uniflorum (Star flower)
Still, the wise gardener will wait to plant most things, because winter usually likes to get in one last word. For us here in LBB, the rule of thumb is to hold off planting until the first week of April. It's hard to wait, though, with all the gorgeous, warm weather we've been having. To help me resist the siren call of spring planting, I'm planning to scratch my itch to get out in the garden with some hardscaping projects this weekend. First on the list: a fabulous idea for some raised beds in the Homesteader's kitchen garden.
