snowdropThis is the time of year when many of us return to our neglected gardens and begin the ritual of preparing the beds for spring. It’s the time when I can hardly wait for those first harbingers of the season —the crisp white snowdrops and the bright yellow buds of the forsythia promising good things to come.

If you’re at a loss about what to do in your garden throughout the year, please join us at the Port Orchard Library when local organic gardener/blogger/business owner Joe Machcinski shares his expertise every fourth Tuesday at 6:30 pm with the “A Year in the Northwest Garden” program series (February through November).
