As we settle into the dog days of winter, gardener’s day dream about warmer weather filled sunny days spent in the garden getting their hands dirty. In our heads we take inventory of what plants will be planted, which plants need to be moved, what bulbs will be planted, and seed catalogs that haven’t arrived. On the snowiest days of winter we snuggle down with seed catalogs and we make our lists of which varieties to order for the upcoming growing season. Margaret Atwood once said that “In the Spring, at the end of the day, you smell like dirt.” In preparation for warmer days and dirty hands,attend one of many Queen Anne’s County Master Gardener Lecture Series. All classes are free and open to the public and offer hands on learning.
