With St. Patrick’s Day almost here, I’m reminded of the good old days trying to find lucky four-leaf clovers in my lawn as a kid. Of course, some years it was hard because clover is a weed and my dad would spray to get rid of them.
It seems like spring is never going to get here. Be sure to cover any tender plants such as veggie transplants you may have picked up this past weekend for the next couple of nights with the temperatures going down to the low to mid 30s. Hopefully this will be the last time, at least in the coastal counties of Mississippi
It’s now time in south Mississippi to get preemerge out on the lawn. I guess lots of folks listening to iHeartRadio took my advice yesterday morning on the In the Garden with Ron Wilson show (55KRC Cincinnati). It took me trips to fours stores for my Scotts Halts. And then I applied in the dark ahead the steady rain we had early, early this morning.
