Missed Valentine’s Day? Worry Not!

 

You still have the opportunity to dazzle your significant other with thoughtful gestures that go beyond the conventional. In today’s fast-paced world, it’s easy to overlook such special occasions, but it’s never too late to express your love and appreciation. Here’s how you can turn a belated Valentine’s Day into an unforgettable experience for your loved one.

Transform Their Space with a Living Rose

Opt for a lasting symbol of your affection with a rose plant. Unlike cut flowers, a rose plant endures, offering blooms year after year. It’s perfect for indoor display until the season transitions, at which point it can adorn an outdoor garden. This living gift symbolizes your growing relationship and requires minimal care to flourish indoors.

Enrich Their Environment with Indoor Plants

Indoor plants are more than just decor; they’re a source of life and vibrancy that can purify the air and even improve health. Selecting the right plant involves considering your partner’s lifestyle and the conditions of their living space. Whether they battle insomnia, travel frequently, live in low-light environments, or simply lack a green thumb, there’s a plant that’s perfectly suited for them.

Making the Ideal Plant Match:

  • For the Flower Enthusiast: Consider cyclamen for its winter blooms in shades of white, pink, and red. It thrives with some sunlight and regular watering, purifying the air for a healthier living space. Alternatively, gloxinia offers striking, colorful blooms under bright, indirect light, requiring only occasional watering and monthly fertilizing during its blooming period.
  • For the Low-Maintenance Partner: The Cast Iron Plant, aptly named for its resilience, thrives in low light and requires minimal care, making it perfect for those who prefer a fuss-free approach. The Red Aglaonema, with its vibrant foliage, and the ZZ Plant, ideal for those who travel often, are both excellent choices for adding greenery without the high maintenance.
  • For the Restless Sleeper: Lavender can be a game-changer, known for its calming fragrance and ability to promote relaxation and sleep. It’s a beautiful, low-maintenance plant that thrives in sunny spots.

This year, make your belated Valentine’s Day gift a declaration of your love and thoughtfulness. A plant is more than just a present; it’s a growing symbol of your relationship, a daily reminder of your care and dedication. So, don’t let the calendar dictate when to show your love. Make any day Valentine’s Day with a gift that grows and flourishes, just like your love for each other.

By choosing a living plant as a belated Valentine’s gift, you’re not only making up for a missed occasion but also investing in a token of affection that will remind your loved one of your thoughtful consideration for days to come. Let your belated gesture be a testament to the enduring nature of your love, proving that it’s never too late to celebrate each other. Happy Belated Valentine’s Day!

Plant in Fall. Enjoy in Spring!

  • Plant fall bulbs now for spring color.
  • The fall months, specifically September and October, are the best times to plant bulbs for a colorful display next spring.
  • To break out of their dormant state, bulbs need 12 – 14 weeks of cold temperatures (below 45 degrees).
  • There are many different bulbs to choose from including; tulips, daffodils, crocus, and alliums.
  • You can plant the bulbs individually or in a mass to create a more vibrant display.
  • Water well when you plant the bulbs in fall as this will stimulate the roots to begin their growth.
  • Keep the soil moist over the winter and continue throughout the blooming period as necessary.
  • It is a good idea to mulch the soil where you have planted the bulbs.
  • Mulch will keep the soil from drying out and help moderate soil temperature so it does not warm up too quickly.

The fall harvest is on!

For at least another week, it appears there will be no frost warning along the Front Range, so vegetables can be left to continue ripening if they are not yet ready to pick.

If you are ready to harvest and store this year’s crop, however, here are some tips to prolong the shelf life of produce you grow or bring home from a farmer’s market.

fall harvest

To harvest most plants from your garden, it’s best to avoid pulling or tugging on plants as that will damage them. Instead, use a sharp knife or pruners to cut stems to remove the produce. Make a clean cut and hold on to the fruit, not the stem.

When buying pumpkins, select the ones with a stem still attached if you want them to last through the fall. After harvesting squashes and pumpkins, carrying them by the stem will likely cause it to break off. Without the stems, they will deteriorate sooner.

In general, the cooler days of fall are ideal for harvesting and cloudy days better than sunny ones. Morning is the best time to pick produce because that is when veggies have the highest water content.

Prepping veggies for storage

  • Getting most veggies wet leads to quicker spoilage. For root crops harvested in the fall such as carrots, turnips, radishes, beets, and additionally, for green beans, getting them wet will shorten their shelf-life.

  • After digging root crops, wipe dirt off with a dry paper towel or cloth and remove the green tops. Root crops will last up to 3 months if kept unwashed in a ventilated plastic bag in the coolest part of the fridge. Carrots picked now will last until Thanksgiving!

  • If you have a cool basement, it can provide excellent storage for root crops plus potatoes, cabbage and tomatoes. Caution: keep carrots away from apples, potatoes and any other veggies that produce ethylene gas as it will make them bitter.

Harvested lettuce and other non-root crops such as peas, corn, broccoli, cauliflower and summer squash, need to breathe and have air circulation to keep them from wilting. Avoid wrapping them tightly in a plastic bag. Instead, use ventilated plastic bags and keep produce in the refrigerator. The coolness shows down metabolism and prolongs freshness.

For lettuce and herbs, insert a moist towel in storage bags. It will add moisture to help prolong freshness without making the greens soggy.

Following these tips can help you enjoy this fall’s harvest well into the months ahead!
