January is a good time to start thinking ahead...

January's drippy days often find me thinking ahead to Spring and what I want to sow in the soil.

Now is a great time to think about what you have grown and whether or not you need to plant cover crops or amend the soil for next year.

One resource that I fall back on time and time again is the Seattle Tilth Maritime Planting Guide. I think I picked up my last copy at Portland Nursery but here is the link just in case you haven't check it out.


Are you new to gardening and not quite sure what to do?  Try a class at Portland Nursery or through East Multnomah Soil and Water.



If you are a teacher and are struggling to find avenues to bring the garden into your classroom check out this link to Oregon State Extension Services-
