I turned the page on my Old Farmer's Almanac Gardening Calendar from February to March and found some fun and interesting facts.
By the way on Sunday March 8th, Daylight Saving Time begins. Yeah! Don't forget to turn your clocks ahead. "Spring ahead, Fall back", remember?
Did you know that seeing a robin in the garden is a sign of good fortune.
March 26 is New Moon. Plant flowers and vegetables that bear crops above ground from the day the Moon is new to the day that it is full again.
There is a Vernal Equinox on the 20th.
Of course, St. Patrick's Day is March 17.
And, as I mentioned before, the weather in March is very fickle here. Right now it is 22 degrees and there are icicles hanging from the Lady Banks Rose on the back porch. This weekend coming we are to have sunny warm temperaures high in the 70's.
I am SO looking forward to the weekend!
