Hi all. Welcome to April. I know for many of us, it's coming in like a lion. Wasn't that supposed to be March?

In my area of the mid-south, we're getting 70's & 80's for highs already, the pollen clouds are in full bloom, & the bees are very busy. But I also see that they're calling for lows in the low 40's by the end of the week...

But at least the end of winter-like weather is in sight! Lots to do this month in the garden!

I have to confess that I don't agree with the strawberry info. I'd pinch the flowers off & just let the plants get settled & grow this year.

And there is a short article on growing strawberries from Garden.org. Here's the link:

https://garden.org/learn/articles/view/1231/

So let's get out there & enjoy the sun. If you have allergies, a surgical mask will be a good friend... And let's see some photos on YOUR garden!
