Charlie Ragonesi Big Canoe Realestate's Blog: March 2009

Spring ! ?

This weekend in the South we got a big burst of COLD air. All the plants that we moved outside  had to come back in. So the question is when is it really spring !? 

If you count Spring as the last frost date then Spring in our area is April 15. If you are in the mountains it could even be a little later. So be advised. Do not let those warm March days fool you. Wait a little longer to plant.Don't worry if you are a little late the plants will catch up !

I am itching to get out and about. Many of us think ths winter was longer than most. Happy Out-doorsing. After all that is what living in the mountains is all about
