Leap Year - An Extra Day to Garden!

Make the most of this extra day during leap year and do something you enjoy.  And for many of us that involves a garden.

Start some micro-greens or grow some sprouts in a jar to spice up your meals and improve your health.  Health food stores, garden centers and catalogues have organic seeds and supplies for growing these.

Or visit the garden center or produce department and purchase herb seeds and plants to grow in a windowsill garden.

Grab a cup of your favorite beverage and spend some time perusing the catalogues.  Gather ideas and plan some changes or colorful additions for next season’s garden.

And, get outside for a walk.  Look at what your neighbors, community and nearby botanical gardens are doing to beautiful their spaces.  You’ll be inspired and I’m sure will find ideas for your own landscape.  Plus, a half hour walk is good for your health and will lift your spirits.

A bit more information:  For details on these garden projects check out my garden videos Windowsill Herb Garden and Micro-gardeningAnd for help deciphering the catalogues listen to my audio tip on Sifting Through Garden Catalogs.
