Alice Nelson will also be contributing her insights and experiences as a cold climate gardener. Alice is from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. You can read a little more about her and her gardening situation in the comments to the previous post about Paul, our other new contributor, and I’m sure she’ll be filling in the details in the near future.
Now, the digging and dividing of perennials, the general autumn cleanup and the planting of spring bulbs are all an act of faith. One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.
