Don't be tricked into planting too early and loosing plants, time and money. But
there ARE many plants in all parts of the U.S that can be started indoors and some that can sown directly in the ground.
Mother Earth News has created this map of the U.S. showing you what to plant and
when. Just click on the link to find out when you can go play in the dirt!

It must be St. Patrick Day, My Fingernails are Green
Not so sure they were talking about chicken pens! I brought in a few junking finds, an old feeder, mop bucket, and a water holder. All the old dirt was cleaned out, new added, and wood chips placed on the ground underneath. Since my husband does all the mowing, he complains about all the junk in the yard which he can't move and get up close to. Of course that never stops me, I just have agreed to be the weed puller and the mulch keeps the weeds down. Plans are for yellow lantana in the feeder, and red geraniums in the mop bucket. Yellow and red and the hens favorite colors!
Spring is on the way, so get started with those gardening chores!
