Dear Almanac readers,
Apologies if you received a Companion newsletter earlier this morning about Groundhog Day. (No, we are not reliving Groundhog Day again!)
Today's issue focuses on the yard and garden. Prime your soil so that it's in top-notch condition for the coming growing season. Check your planting dates (based on the last spring frost).
If you're new to gardening (or, even if you're not), review the top "3 Garden Planning Mistakes" video. It's especially helpful for motivating some of us who haven't yet planned our gardens!
Your Almanac Editors
Deep down within the frozen brook
I hear a murmur faint and sweet,
And lo! The ice breaks as I look,
And living waters touch my feet.
–Jane Goodwin Austin (1831–94)
