Hi Gardeners,

As we await Spring’s arrival (today will do) I’m posting some resources I found online. Bur first, check out what’s blooming in the garden. Robin Mace captured the first crocuses. Beautiful!

From the National Gardening Association,
Mid-Atlantic Regional Gardening Report featuring blight-resistant cherry tomatoes, garden photography and the following reminders for preparing gardens for Spring:

  • Cut Back Shrubby Dogwoods For New Growth
  • Clip Twiggy Leadwort
  • Repair Turf
  • Seed Grass
  • Clean Up Winter Debris

From NC Cooperative Extension’s website, successfulgardener.org:
Be Healthy — Grow What You Eat (PDF)
A brochure describing the benefits of growing your own food to you and your family with tips on preparing a garden, types of vegetables and fruits that thrive in cold and warm climates and more.
