March Tasks

With the first day of spring, March also brings unpredictable weather.  It is a month to start growing but choosing the right time is essential.  Some people may be able to add some level of control to the unpredictable weather by using a greenhouse or windowsill to start plans growing, but for others it will be a month of waiting for the right conditions.

Only hardy crops should be sown outside this time of the year due to the large swings in temperature from warm during the day to freezing at night.  Plants, such as peppers and tomatoes need a little extra care and appreciate time on the kitchen windowsill.
