Welcome to Monday!

Hey its a new month and a new Monday!  Officially 16 days away from Spring! YAY!!!   

Over the weekend I saw "Spring things" you know bushes,  trees and flowers at Lowes, and Home Depot- all just waiting to be put into the dirt.

   This is my favorite time of year-I love the colors, the new leaves, the flowers plus  I can't wait to plant! I actually pulled weeds and some old plants out of my 6x6 garden on Sunday.  Though I am excited to plant - I know I have to wait.

I found out the hard way last year, not to get over zealous and plant too early.  I did plant a tomato seedling in February because last winter was so mild. That plant had tons of tomatoes at first then stopped producing.  Was it the plant or was it too early?  

What can we plant this month? Old timers say plant potatoes on March 17 St. Patrick's day.  I think I will follow that rule and wait this year to plant the tomato's!

Happy Gardening!
