Gardening has been a lifelong passion for Wende and she’d like to share her passion with her readers. Follow her as she writes about her gardening adventures, lists tasks to do depending on the season, and gives easy to understand gardening advice.
If you are interested in hearing what's going on "horticulturally" in Wisconsin each week, the UW Extension holds a weekly meeting where the Master Gardeners discuss the calls they have received from people and also the experts report on what plant, animal, disease or insect trends are happening. They create both a podcast and a pdf transcript of the meetings.
They are very informative and gives you an idea of the kinds of things you may see happening in your yard. For example, they mention that even though it's been very warm and plants are growing well, the bird migrations have been slower. This is because the weather conditions in the south weren't favorable to pushing birds up north until recently.
