The tubers can be left in the ground until it is freezing, but why wait? Better to work in nice weather.
Bob and I were often out in the cold digging up the flower bed. Our hands froze. Our noses ran. I hated those tubers because of the winter-like weather.
Not this year. I chose the last nice day to do this chore.
It’s no good to wait until the last minute.
I enjoyed my time with my flowers this fall because I wasn’t freezing.
Now I’m looking at a small package of tulip bulbs. Should I plant them? Or should I save them to force the bulbs to bloom mid-winter?
I planted a couple of fall bulbs, but when the snow flies I like to see growing plants. The rest will give me comfort in January.
Until next time, that’s it from Sunnybook Farm.
