Winter Gardening Tasks

Winter Gardening Tasks and a Giveaway | angiethefreckledrose.comRight this minute, especially if you live in the Northeast, most of our gardens are in hibernation mode. We might have some houseplants blooming, maybe an amaryllis or some paperwhites. As far as the outdoor gardens go, there still might be some snow to deal with and some February storms to come. In the meantime, the year has started, and it's never to early to begin planning.

GIVEAWAY ALERT! Before we continue, make sure you scroll to the bottom of this post to enter a great giveaway! So lets get started.

Tools

There are some tasks you can start right now to ensure you have a successful planting season this year. The first thing I do every winter is organize all my tools. I don't know about you, but at the end of the season, I get lazy.

My tools end up scattered here and there. I might leave one in the shed, some in the garage and even a few in the house for small garden projects. Time to round them all up! The next step is to clean what you have and take inventory. What tools would be a great new addition to your collection?

CobraHead® "Mini" Weeder & Cultivator

Over the summer, I was introduced to my new favorite gardening tool. It is something that I couldn't imagine living without. During the Garden Bloggers Fling, I was properly introduced to CobraHead®The Best Tool In Earth. That pun instantly won me over. I had to give it a try!

Winter Gardening Tasks and a Giveaway | CobraHead® | angiethefreckledrose.comI am definitely guilty of putting off weeding for as long as I can. Let's be honest here, how many of us actually enjoy weeding? Early in the season it's not so bad. Then, come August, my yard starts looking like a jungle!

I was given a CobraHead® "mini" Weeder and Cultivator. This immediately made weeding feel much easier as soon as I tried it out. Weeding will always be a chore no matter what we do, but this does the hard work for you. 

This handy tool is super light-weight with a comfortable and efficient handle. It weighs only 5 ounces and can fit in your pocket easily. It weeds, digs, cultivates, plants and more. I love how easily it breaks through my tough and rocky soil. As soon as I held it in my hands, I knew it would be my new favorite tool.

It has a blade that is a steel fingernail® and becomes an extension of your hand. When I use it, I feel strong and, most importantly, capable of accomplishing all my biggest gardening tasks!

Close up of the CobraHead® mini's all-purpose steel fingernail® blade

Here are a few examples of what this versatile tool can help you do.
It weeds, cultivates, scalps, edges, digs, furrows, plants, transplants, de-thatches and harvests.

I also really appreciate how the handle is made using recycled material. Even the tool's tag is made out of 100% recycled paper. The tempered steel blade has a curve that makes it very easy to hang. If you are a homesteader, you will find even more uses for it. I bring mine into the barn with me when I'm cleaning out the chicken coop. It can really get into those hard to reach places and help you scrape up any mess. In 2018, The CobraHead® "mini" became a Green Thumb Award winner for being an outstanding new garden product!

Start A Garden Journal

This is a task that is super simple and ends up making all the difference by the end of the season. Give yourself a place to brainstorm and write down your garden plans for the year. If you are a visual person like me, this will really make your ideas seem possible and more tangible.

You might have some brilliant ideas right now. Everyone can't help but dream big when the snow is falling outside. If you don't write it down, April will roll around and you definitely won't remember all the details of your plans.

If you are looking for a journal to get you started, check out Zoe's Garden Prints. The Little Green Veg Growers Journal & Planner is handmade using recycled paper. It comes packaged in a biodegradable (compostable) corn starch bag, ready for you to start jotting down all your ideas. Take a look at what Zoe did with her 2017 Allotment journal.

 

Purchase Some Seeds & Bulbs

Now is a great time to start taking inventory of what you already have and highlight what you might need. There are so many great places to purchase seeds, bulbs and live plants for next season. A great way to become inspired and get those ideas flowing is to sign up for some catalogs. There are so many great gardening companies that offer free catalogs packed full of gardening favorites and even some new varieties to add to your garden. Here are some favorites I'm ordering from!

Start Your Seeds Indoors

The first step when it comes to starting seeds is figuring out what you want to grow. Once you have your list ready, make sure you know what zone you are growing in. You can use a helpful first and last frost date calculator to help you find out when to start your seeds.

Gather your seed starting supplies from your local home improvement stores or even the companies listed above. Your seeds will need adequate lighting, warmth and special soil made for starting seeds. Take all of this into consideration while shopping for what you need. Once you have your supplies, you are ready to get planting!

    These are great tips Angie! I usually go to Home Depot and plant a small plant, hoping it will grow bigger. I’ve had some success growing plants from seeds, but it’s still tricky for me. I have lavender and some flower seeds in containers outside right now. Hopefully, they’ll bloom, since its warm during the day here. Thanks for sharing!

    I’m just starting to plan my garden. I feel a little behind, as I know I need to get my seeds started this month, and still need to figure out what I’m planting, and then get supplies! Thanks for some ideas to get me started!

    Unfortunately, working in my garden when my arthritis acts up is alittle bit more difficult. This tool looks like it would make my gardening chores easier, especially on those days. I like the fact it’s lightweight, and multipurpose. Thanks for having this giveaway! Happy gardening!

    I have hadmy eye on Cobrahead tools fter aeeing them for sale at a local gardeneing conference. The bright blue handle would help me find it it goes missing in the yard-tools seem to get left behind far too often these days as I often uncover a rusty tool when the snwo finally melts away.

    We have terrible soil here but have been adding and adding to it each year and hopefully
    this year will be summer it really takes off! I love having the makings for salad at my fingertips
    cucumbers, tomatoes, greens etc.. Yellow squash and zucchini do well here too. I would love to add
    potatoes this year and maybe some asparagus. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    We just got a new house. I planted a bunch of bulbs and some native seeds last fall. In the spring I’m going to see what comes up, and then fill in with more native perennials.
