Gardening News from Pennsylvania

Posted by Bob Matthews on 2/1/2018 to News

Tuesday, February 2nd is a huge day for gardeners. A big announcement out of Pennsylvania, will let us know whether we will soon be able to start our spring crops, or whether we will have to wait another 6 weeks.


Every February 2nd, Punxsutawney Phil, America’s most famous ground hog, is awoken from his cozy winter’s nap. Phil is poked, cajoled and pushed out of his den. Squinting into the daylight, Phil will either see his shadow, or he won’t . If he sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter. If he doesn’t, gardeners across the country can get out their seeds, starting soil, seed trays and propagation mats. Spring is right around the corner.


Be sure to check back here on the 2nd, to see Phil’s official prediction.


In the meantime, find the seeds you need.
