Groundhog Day and Winter Ruts

Punxsutawney’s most famous critter will make a grand appearance this month to assess the presence of his shadow and the duration of our winter. While the occasion has been celebrated since 1887these days Groundhog Day is perhaps more famous because of the Bill Murray movie than the holiday itself.

In the movie, Bill Murray’s character repeats Groundhog Day over and over again until he makes a positive life shift. It’s a wonderful reminder to not get stuck in our daily ruts.

With these shorter days, I found myself in a bit of a winter rut. As we know, a little fresh air – no matter the season – is good for us. So, I decided to focus on a couple of our planters that needed some TLC. Turns out, February is prime time to plant some amazing flowers and vegetables!

The experience outdoors combined with the sense of accomplishment that comes with getting my hands a little dirty, was just want I needed for a winter reboot.

Check out this link to a useful guide on what to plant, where to plant, and when to plant it:

Hopefully these tips will help you transition into spring, regardless if the groundhog sees his shadow.
