The annual garden weekend is a little over a month away. Recent weather makes one pause, but no matter the conditions, work continues in the garden. Visit historic Fort de Chartres as a few habitants recreate the experiences of the colonists of the 18th century Illinois Country. We will prepare the kitchen garden for the late winter and early spring plantings. No matter the weather, as last year proved, it is fun to talk about gardening and seeds whether out in the garden or standing in comfort in the Guard room near the fire. Jardin Potager heirloom seed packet samples and seed starting information will be available to share with those who visit with us Saturday, 11 AM-3 PM, or Sunday, 11 AM-2 PM. Laissez le jardinage commence! Let the gardening begin. Or as our reader from the French Alps, Jerome, more correctly expressed-Attaquons les travaux du jardin! Let’s start the work to be carried out in the garden.
