Edible Garden Newsletter February 2017

Lanark County Master Gardeners
Edible Garden Newsletter February 2017 As any gardener dealing with the vagaries of weather and pest infestations can tell you, our natural world is a complex system! Repeating or cyclical patterns make it a little easier to understand. Cyclical events in nature range from daily cycles of light and dark to millennia-long cycles in the tilt and wobble of the earth, which affect how much sunlight and heat reaches our planet. The study of these cyclical events in nature, their causes and relation-ship to other natural phenomena, particularly weather and climate, is called phenology. We also introduce a new, ongoing feature on pollinators.
