Getting ready for spRing

Propagation is ongoing every Saturday at the Wolfe Ranch from 10:00 until Noon, weather permitting. We need everyone’s help. There is a lot to do in only 11 weeks! Weather is always an issue this time of the year between the rain and wind, so we will try to notify everyone of cancelation of propagation no later than early Saturday mornings, so check your e-mail before heading out to the Ranch for status.

If you are planting seeds for the sale, they need to be planted soon. Also, coordinate with Connie Miller to see what plants are needed and/or what you are already growing so she knows what plants and approximate quantity to expect.

Spring is almost here so it is time to get ready for spring planting. Inventory all your garden tools, clean and sharpen as needed and purchase tools that you need. Inventory all your supplies, fertilizers, insecticides, etc. and make a list of what you will need throughout the planting and growing season, then keep an eye out for sales so you can restock at a savings. Clear your garden of weeds before they get out of control, divide perennials, prune, etc.. Feed your soil by adding compost, manure and slow release fertilizer. But most importantly, come to the Wolfe Ranch on Saturday’s from 10:00 to noon to help the garden club get plants ready for the May annual Plant Sale!
