There's something NEW on Notes from Maggie's Farm!
After years of sharing monthly gardening to-do lists, and hearing how helpful you readers found this regular Tips for Tuesday feature, I've been scouring my brain for ways to make that information easier to access. I mean what if you want, say, to plan ahead? What if you wanted to know what you'd be planting in September? Or what grubby work you could be put off until your brother visited? There's value in that kind of intel!
So I came up with an idea. An idea that wasn't quite as easy to configure as I'd imagined.
