Southern Gardening from 2019
This January’s temperatures have been drastically different from what we saw during last year’s first month.
Many home gardeners look forward to this time of year to browse catalogs in search of great new plants to enjoy in their 2019 landscapes.
If there’s one vegetable that could be considered the ultimate home-grown vegetable in Mississippi, it has to be collards.
Collards were chosen as a 2019 Mississippi Medallion winner because they are considered absolutely necessary for true Southern cuisine. As a bonus, they’re really easy for home gardeners to grow.
One of the signs that spring will be sprung in the near future is when the daffodils start awakening and poking up in the landscape beds.
We survived the latest polar vortex, and I join other Mississippi gardeners in being thankful that we didn’t get the really extreme cold our friends up North experienced. But still, it was cold enough for me and my garden.
