Tip of the month: It is time to clear to be ready to plant annuals and perennials as well as vegetables. Have the soil ready so when danger of frost is past, the seeds and transplants can be planted. After planting, top dress with compost or use a granular fertilizer. Supplement every three weeks with an organic liquid food.
