Growing on the High Plains: Planting Bulbs

Sep 13, 2018

Bulbs are a lot of work, but I'd say they're worth it!

"Nothing ever comes to one, that is worth having, except as a result of hard work." —Booker T. Washington 

Many folks take to gardening as a way to relax, focus on nature, and unwind. However, it doesn't take long to realize this hobby can be VERY hard work.

In fact, when I look back on the time I set my mind to tidy up some rogue tulips, this sentiment rings very true. A simple task of maintenance soon blossomed into a fantastic feat of determination, time, and labor. But in the end—in the aftermath of scrapped plans, pared-down pipe dreams, and weeks of weeding, whittling, and whistling—I had created a masterpiece. With proper planning, time to spare, and a little muscle, you can turn on those bulbs so they glow all season long!
