Hope everyone had a great Easter (for those who celebrate it) and a beautiful day yesterday to start the month.

Here in Atlanta, the pollen is in full swing. Mason & bumble bees are out doing their thing. The mahogany wasps are poking around. Birds are looking in our garage for good nesting sites, lol!

In looking at my garden, it seems that I'm being invaded by moles or voles (or snakes). I found a couple of holes leading into the area... And, of course, the fire ants are already migrating upwards. I'm also going to have to replace some of the wood in the beds. I'm thinking I'll go with cinder block as I replace it.... But that means I'll need to rethink planting space as well since it's so much deeper than the 2x8's... Decisions, decisions.... I'm open to suggestions & your thoughts!

Keeping in mind that my info from Gardenate.com is for 7B, we're all pretty similar in mid-south as far as planting dates. Here's what they've got listed for this month:

if you use cinder blocks fill with rocks. Ants hate it, but if you put in dirt or sand they will move in. this may be helpful in getting rid of fire ants with molasses or beneficial nematodes.
