This weekend starts Daylight Saving Time throughout most of the United States. We will set our clocks forward an hour—springing forward. When we awake in the morning it might still be dark for some of us early-morning risers; that part might be challenging for a little while. However, we will have an extra hour of light at the end of the day, which makes most of us gardening types haapppyyy!

For those of us living in a region that has rather mild winters, the seed starting party is only 4-5 weeks away. For some it's a little farther out. But make no mistake, it's going to be here before you know it.

Magical Moons & Seasonal Circles is a book featuring Phenology, which is the study of the timing of natural-occuring events happening with all fauna and flora, which is influenced by the local environment, weather, climate, and seasonal rhythms.
It is that time of year again; for many of us gardening is on hold until the spring. So we are turning inwards in hibernation mode and getting ready for the holidays. I will be posting some ideas for gifts for the gardener here and throughout the week. One such gift is Pat Crocker's book Preserving: The Canning and Freezing Guide for All Seasons.
