A pair of my fellow garden bloggers have excellent holiday ideas that I'd like to share....
Helen Yoest at Gardening with Confidence says the best thing to put in a birdbath at this time of year is water for the birds who are wintering over and may find their other drinking spots frozen.
But if you have nine of them, as she does, (yes nine!), you can give one over to the holiday and decorate it. She offers step-by-step photos to help you do it, too.
And Laura Mathews, who writes the Punk Rock Gardens blog out of Central Pennsylvania, is writing about CSAs, Community Supported Agriculture, and suggests giving a membership as a Christmas gift. CSAs provide a box of locally grown, fresh produce every week or so.
Each box contains a suprise, Laura writes. And it is truly the gift that keeps on giving!
