January and February are typically the slowest times of the year for garden stores. Cold weather and frozen ground make it almost impossible to do any gardening. Even if you get a plant in the ground, it will often die in the freezing temperatures.🥶
Take a look at your existing inventory. Chances are that the local garden supply stores have plenty of gardening supplies left over from last year. Since most garden stores also have contracts with their suppliers, they expect shipments of the same supplies in the spring.🌻
Many stores have their seed packets on sale now too. This is garden planning time NOW!!.🌱
Make a list: write down your everyday or every week foods that you eat and decide which ones you will grow this year, WHY?✅
✅to save money$$
