Nice Spring Day Today!

Yesterday was great with all sun and the temperatures in the low 60s.  This week it will be time to put down the lawn fertilizer with weed deterrents.  I have started the tomatoes inside anticipating fresh tasty fruit this summer.  Yes, the tomato is a fruit, I don’t care what the government says.  Tomatoes are […]
