Spring is on the Horizon
March 20 marks the official end of winter in the Northern hemisphere! Time for daylight savings and to get ready for spring! I, for one, am ready for the warmer weather; this winter seemed abnormally cold to me.
I have been getting my seed catalogs in the mail and am planning what to plant in my garden this year. Tomatoes, peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, celery and garlic are at the top of the list. I am even going to try an avocado tree this year since I eat one everyday as part of my healthy fat intake. This will also be the first year that our kiwi vines will produce fruit, I can’t wait! Now if my fig trees would just grow a bit faster, I’d be in heaven.
All kinds of interesting things happen in March: March 2nd marks Dr. Suess's 115th birthday, you can see the last supermoon of 2019, celebrate Mardi Gras and St. Patrick’s Day. It’s Women's History Month, National Nutrition Month, American Red Cross Month and Fire Prevention Month. And if you’re into basketball, there is March Madness!
No wonder they say March comes in like a lion!
