My hardy rosemary plant has stayed green all winter, but since we're expecting up to 20 inches of snow overnight through Wednesday, I thought I'd cover up the plant to protect it from the weather until spring actually arrives....
My brother, Jonathan, had built 2 cold frames for me last winter, so I took one from against the south side of the house and put it directly into the garden over the small stand of rosemary.
Now the fresh rosemary nestles inside the cold frame amongst the drab brown of the other spent herbs, waiting for the snow to fall tonight.
A lettuce mix in one of our raised beds had spent the cold months under the other of my cold frames. I picked several leaves to bring inside while I was out taking photos.
Trimmings from the tallest stalks of the rosemary plant found a home in the windowsill, and hopefully they will develop roots to be replantable outside.
What are your gardening chores this month?
