Spring can be tricky

After months of cold snowy winter days it's nice when March comes around. The flowers start to bloom, the grass turns green, the bees start to buzz. O.k. maybe the bee thing is not so pleasant, but you get it what I mean. Spring is enjoyable.

Spring is a beautiful season in Virginia but can be tricky. Some days it will be 70 degree then snowing the next. This is important to remember when planting your garden. There are some plants that can take a cold night and others that can not. Broccoli, lettuce, potatoes, radishes, onions and brussel sprouts are some cold plants. They thrive in cold weather.

The United States National Arboretum can tell you which hardiness zone your in.

Here is a picture of my yard last Sunday, March 27, 2011. SNOW!!
