The first day of Spring! Aaa..chooo!!
why pollen is important
The different kinds of pollen also helps us in the garden. Interplanting vegetables with suitable flowers (or even other vegetables) is always encouraged - so that it becomes easier for pollen to move between two plants. Some plants naturally attract bug-predators too. I often will plant zinnia's and marigolds with my tomatoes for a bountiful harvest. So, think of all these things when you are beginning your gardens!
In my garden - we are going to wait a little before I plant anything. I cant wait to find what survived this strange winter we've had in Georgia. Hopefully my peonies come back - they always do better with a little dusting of snow but we had a little more than that. I am fearful that my ginger-lilies did not make it, but have my fingers crossed. Our vegetables often serve as a salad bar for all the critters, so we may not provide those this year (also because I may be travelling during the summer), but instead I will be planting a handful of tall and colorful sunflowers along the deck, so I can watch all the birds come by.
I hope you are making some exciting progress with your gardens and enjoying the weather as much as you can! I know I am :)
