  • Spring break from teaching at U of L falls conveniently during the week of St. Patrick’s Day; which is also my target date for planting onions and potatoes.  I typically manage a mid-March planting but the condition of the soil is my primary concern.  I will not start digging until the soil dries out and is considered workable.

  • 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.

  • 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.
