Enough about the weather already. Easter was slightly early this year and we have had snow on that holiday before, so no one should be surprised at what the weather forecasters are breathlessly reporting.
Myself, I have been burned too many times by planting things in April, only to see them die from one last (or next to last) frost. The tradition now is to load up the beds on Memorial Day weekend. I will be working Friday through Sunday nights then, so my Monday will be spent in the dirt. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
In the meantime, keep the scrapers handy.
