We live in zone 6a and I have been gardening and cooking for years. This blog is an opportunity for me to share with you my success and those failures that come about on occasion. Plus, I want to hear from all the gardeners and bakers and cooks out there and learn from you. Feel free to share your ideas.

Christmas Prep: Amaryllis Bulbs

Some may say it is a bit early to be preparing for Christmas, but not when it comes to Amaryllis bulbs. I have a collection of Red Lion and I put them outdoors around May and repot in September. For the next 4 weeks they will get very little water and in October I will bring them indoors to a cool dark place to settle in to start to rebloom. Hopefully around the Christmas season I will have beautiful flowers. We shall see.
