Master Gardener

This is my favorite time of the year!  Flowers everywhere, and most everybody has home grown and they are glad to share.  With the pick of the best home grown’s you get to see from gardens locally, or from dealers scattered all over town.  If you have any spare plants leftover make sure to share with your friends and neighbors.  Make sure to plant milkweed for the butterflies and next year the milkweed will be a host to the insects to pollinate the crop.  It is a plant that is hated by most, it is in ditches and border lines, yards and fields.  It is one of my favorites due to its ability to grow for next year, and you will have butterflies forever.  Mother nature is smarter than we think!
