Less is more with early season yard work
The weather has been lovely, we have spring fever and we can be easily tricked into thinking that maybe we can start digging around those flower beds and see what has survived the winter and if things are starting to sprout. But NO! This is Minnesota, zone 3, and we have April to get through and May can also be very devious. So leave the flower beds as they are and check the produce you have in cold storage to make sure nothing is turning soft or rotting.
