Potting plants

The high school ag classes are getting ready for their plant sale for Mother's Day weekend, planting and repotting plants in the high school greenhouse. Most of the plants that they will have for sale on Friday, May 10 and Saturday, May 11, are decorative annuals, but they will also have some tomatoes and other vegetable garden plants available.
This is an annual event that usually gets a good turnout. This year they will have more plants for sale than in the past. I do not have the times for the sale yet, but will post them on the sidebar when I get them.

Spring is finally here. The lawns have turned green and some people have already started mowing. I heard a mower in Weston Cemetery this morning and it took a while to figure out what that unfamiliar sound was. The maple trees are finished blooming and the magnolias are ready to open their buds. We may still get some cold nights with frost ahead of us, but it now looks and feels like spring.
