What "To Do" in the Garden this Month:
Well, spring is sping-ing...It's still a great time to plant trees and shrubs!
I'm always amazed at how much there is to do in the garden, and so many times I feel a bit
overwhelmed with what I want to do versus what I can do. So, I make a list.
Lists are great; I absolutely love them!
But, always remember that God ordains our steps and His way will always be best.
I love to use the Dirt Doctor's "What to Do" as a guide.
Here is a link to the calendar pages:

It's a great video, but take into account that our last average freeze date is March 16th. The redbuds are blooming, so I'm hoping we're finished with freezes...hoping!!!
Please note that a frost can occur any time through mid-April.
Another great resource is Robert "Skip" Richter's book,
