Spring is official and MG planning
March 20, 2017
The first day of spring felt more like summer. It was 85 degrees in my yard and my parked car when I got in tonight felt like 100! Everyone keeps saying that if this is what the first day of spring is like, what is our summer going to be like. Let's hope we take a page from our past winter. On December 18 we went from 77 to 17 and it was 15 degrees on December 19. Everyone felt like we were in for a brutal winter, when in reality we barely had one. So let's hope we have a mild summer to match our mild winter.
Today was our monthly meeting of the Pulaski County planning committee for the state conference. We still have spaces available since we can take 700 people. We have almost 600 already registered and it is going to be a spectacular event. Today we had signs to pass out to folks to get to our garden center/nursery sponsors so that as Master Gardeners and other gardeners are out buying plants they can thank them.
If you see one when you are out, please thank them. We do appreciate them for all the wonderful plants they provide for us to purchase, but financially backing us also shows how much they value our program! You should see them at Cantrell Gardens, Good Earth, Hocotts and River Valley Horticulture.
Enjoy all the details.....Read More
