Welcome to March

March 2, 2015

Contributed by OKWB Community Manager Mari Farthing

The most memorable March for me was 2002. It was when my son was born, and I remember going to the hospital when it was cold, dreary and wintery. When we left to go home, a ridiculously short time later, the leaves were starting to bloom or do whatever it is leaves do. It was the strangest thing to me, how fast the whole world had just changed. The scraggly, cold bare branches had given way to the persistence of change, of spring.

Honestly, I was terrified to bring that little boy home—who thought this would be a good idea!?—but those green leaves were as soothing as a prayer. I hoped and prayed the prayer of new mothers everywhere, that I would get lucky and it would be easy for me (spoiler alert: it was hard but I still felt lucky).

That’s what I think of when March rolls around—no matter what the winter has brought, the promise of spring is in the air. It’s a time for renewal and growth and all of my gardening friends are writing about their preparations for their summer gardens, and they too are counting on luck to lead to a bounty. It’s quite exciting. It reminds me of one of my favorite quotes, “I am a great believer in luck, and I find that the harder I work, the more I have of it.” (Thomas Jefferson) Isn’t that the truth?

Our theme for March is Luck, tied of course to the shamrocks and clovers we see all over for St. Patrick’s Day, but it seems fitting that this month of renewal.

We have a new blogger of the month for March—Peggy Chambers is joining us from Enid, and I hope you enjoy getting to learn more about her.

Gardening, Whoa

February 20, 2015

Contributed by OKWB blogger Michelle Ferguson Successful Oklahoma gardening has been a long time aspiration. Last year, I thought I had it made. I planted a tomato twig—a tiny, slightly leafy, innocent seedling—and promptly forgot about it. Thankfully, a wet, semi-cool summer nurtured my forgotten’s growth, and three months later I happened by the garden […]
