Armchair Gardening



 Hello Friends,

Today I am sharing the article I wrote for the November issue of the Cameron Chronicle.

"The Little Paper With Personality."


Armchair Gardening

By Carla TePaske of Cameron WI ~ The Little Garden That Could

At the end of October, the garden is put to bed. The pots are packed away. Spring bulbs are planted and seeds have been harvested.

Now it is time for armchair gardening. Now is the time to study the books and flip through the magazines you did not have time for.

Seed catalogs will arrive, it is time to start to write notes about seeds and plants you want to include in the new season.

  1. I like that you have given us the titles of the reading material!!

  2. Oh I think I could manage some armchair gardening Carla.

  3. Armchair gardening...my favorite kind, since I can't kill anything that way!! Haha!! I do love dreaming my way through the seed catalogs though. I just wish they'd sell green thumbs along with the seeds!!

  4. I received my Vesey's Seed Catalogue this week but I didn't had time to go through it yet. Hopefully I'll be able to do some armchair gardening sometime on Sunday.

    Take care, hugs.

  5. Your article is wonderful. You do such a great job.

  6. As you know I am no stripe of gardener but I love reading about it! xoxo
