Winter Gardening


What to do with the kids on winter break? <a href="http://cactusjungle.com/archives/blog/exit.php?url_id=1727&amp;entry_id=1530" title="http://www.explorernews.com/article/show/21055" onmouseover="window.status=’http://www.explorernews.com/article/show/21055′;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;">In Tucson</a> they garden.<br /><br /><div style="margin-left: 40px;"><span style="font-style: italic;">With the school break upon us, and the kids getting bored… It’s time to get outside and do something real. Simply puttering around, putting things to right in the landscape can be very relaxing. Have the kids help. Put them to work….<br />
<br />
If you simply must feel productive, right now is a fine time to add mulch against frost… Just don’t mulch the inch or so right next to the trunk, which could encourage rot. Mulch will help save water in summer, too. <span style="font-weight: bold;">Just don’t mulch succulents like cacti and agave.</span></span><br /></div><br />My parents never gardened with us when we were little. They kept it all to themselves. Well, no, they did no gardening themselves either.<br /><br />
