The snows are starting to fall, and your garden is at rest. It’s nestled beneath a blanket of white, just waiting for the moment when the sprouts will break through the surface in the coming year.
While it looks pretty, that snow is actually helping to protect your garden. Its insulating properties increase the soil temperature and help keep it from drying out.
Every snowflake that piles on means one less drop of moisture that evaporates into the air. In the end, this means you don’t have to worry about wind and sun drying your garden over the season.
Plus, as the snow melts, that moisture goes deep into the soil where it waits for the roots of spring to reach it and nourish your flourishing garden blossoms. It is all part of a cycle, and it’s taking place even though your spades, shovels, and rakes are safely nestled in the garage and storage shed.
