• Starting seeds indoors

    I have my orders placed for onion sets and seed potatoes along with some of my favorite summer crops that will be directly seeded in the garden once the temperatures really warm.
    I can barely stand the wait.  
    I have just seeded out several trays of early season vegetables that like a cool start to the season. Kale, broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts are just beginning to push through the light potting mix.

  • Remember your finances while spring cleaning

    Many people have an annual spring cleaning routine which includes washing windows, cabinets and woodwork. This year take time to also “clean-up” your financial records. Sort through your financial paperwork, and identify old statements which can be shredded or thrown away. Remember, it is always a good idea to shred any paperwork that contains personal information, especially bank account, credit card or other financial information.

  • Early spring bloomers

    True to most springs in Kentuckiana, one day is sunny and warm, the next cloudy and cold.
    It’s an anxious time of the year for most gardeners as we watch the sun coax open a little patch of crocus or catch sight of an old landscape filled with waves of blooming white snow drops.  
    Must we wait for the forsythia to bloom as we pray for warmth?  No, there are plenty of other early bloomers to keep us content until spring truly arrives.
