Welcome gardening friends, thanks for stopping by!
If you’re excited to work in your yard or garden, but not sure what to do in the uncertain early Spring weather, then you’ve come to the right place! We’ve put together a list of things to do throughout the month.
You may not need to do everything on this list. For example, if you don’t have fruit trees to fertilize or a sprinkler system to check, skip over those items on the list. Just pick what applies to your home and yard and plan out when you will do it all throughout the month!
