Watch for frost:

We are very well aware that there are some of you who won't be able to resist the temptation to go out and pick up some plants with this awesome weather we're having. (I don't blame you, I'm pretty tempted myself.) Just remember to pay attetion to when we're going to have another frost, we are not in the clear at all yet. Anything you put in planters or in th ground will have to be covered over when we have that frost. I use old bed sheets, propped up off the foliage of the plants. Enjoy the sunshine for the next few days!!



So what are you planting now?

How many of you have peas planted in your gardens already??? It is that time you know, peas are a great cool weather crop!


Tips for you:

1. Get your compost or loam into your garden now so that is all ready for planting in     a few weeks- and then wait. It's just that waiting time of year...

2. If you are starting some of your vegetables indoors, now is the time to start.     Broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, peppers and tomato seeds     can all be started pretty much anytime this month for optimum growth and harvest.     If you have any questions feel free to post them.

3. Prune your fruit trees BEFORE the spring buds swell. Remove any suckers at the     base of the tree also.

4. With the weather being so warm this week, take some time to walk around your     yard and take an inventory of what's going on. Make a note of any lawn repair that     needs to be done. Look up and see if any tree branches were damaged over the     winter and need to be trimmed. I personally make a 'map' of my yard- I draw out     what is already there, and then pencil in my projects for the year.
