Jo Canning is featured talking about early spring gardening March 8th :

"Plants care more about the heat in the soil than they do the heat in the air..."

"It's colder now and it will be colder in April, than it was in November!"

" Leaf mold is Mother Nature's candy for the soil"

"When the birds start digging at the soil, it's time to turn your compost.. use the finished stuff at the bottom up first."
