Spring is coming, are you getting the itch to plant?

Daylight Saving Time begins on Sunday March 11th, temperatures are beginning to get warmer, the grass is starting to get green and the daffodils are starting to bloom. I don’t know about you but I am starting to think about planting things in my vegetable and flower gardens.

When is the right time to plant? When is the last frost? When do you plant what vegetables? Here is a great publication by Virginia Tech that will help you answer all those questions.  http://pubs.ext.vt.edu/426/426-331/426-331_pdf.pdf.

Daylight Saving Time is upon us again

This Sunday morning at 2am we will “Spring Forward” into Daylight Saving Time by turning our clocks ahead by 1 hour, of course most of us will do this before we go to bed. Have you ever wondered why we spring forward? Here’s a good site that tells all about it http://www.webexhibits.org/daylightsaving/b2.html.
