NOT SURE IT IS SPRING YET
Is it really spring? Just because the calendar says it is, does not make it so. It is going to be in the 30's tonight-probably patchy frost in the morning. I know a lot of people are already planting and putting out tomatoes-I think the soil is still too cold for a lot of stuff. Content yourselves with painting pots like the one above -or repainting patio furniture , etc. There is a lot to do in the yard/garden till time to plant most things. Of course you can plant perennials, they will be o.k. Hold off on most annuals though.
Paint those gourds you grew last year and make some bird houses. Visit some of the spring garden shows and plant sales for inspiration. And don't act surprised when we get that cold snap around Easter-it happens every year!
