Happy New Year! It’s hard to believe that we’re already in a new year. After almost an entire year of quarantining, in this month’s episode, we took time to pause and reflect on last year’s gardening success and failures. Like many of you, the pandemic really threw us for a loop and many of our goals for the previous year took the back burner to more pressing issues. We chatted about our 2021 gardening goals. At the same time, we discussed cold weather plant care (13:00 ). Northeast winters can be very harsh and damaging to our plants, ensuring that they receive proper care during bad weather safeguards our plants.
