If you’re allergic to pollen, take note: It’s everywhere!
There’s pollen everywhere! All my mango trees are bursting in blossoms and pollen, and the slash pines are following suit. If you have allergies, take an allergy pill before you venture into your garden.
I was reading National Geographic magazine the other day. The author of an article on ugly fruit failed to mention that all those ugly shaped veggies are more nutritious for you than the hot-house variety that have no taste and little nutritional value. Fruit and veggies are often mislabled as “local” because the guidelines state that “local” simply needs to be grown within a certain distance and amount of time to travel. For instance, I saw some tomatoes advertised as “local” — ands they were from Texas!
And speaking of local growing, time to start your spring garden seedlings so they will bear fruit before the end of June.
