Healthy Tip - Health Benefits of March Garden Chores
As the weather starts to warm up and we can feel the beginning of spring, it's the perfect time to do your March garden chores. Doing the yearly maintenance in a perennial garden, getting your vegetable garden ready, starting seedlings, or preparing beds for your favorite annuals gives the added benefit of getting you out and moving. Gardening can be a wonderful way to get your physical activity. Whether you are digging, hauling out debris, or spreading mulch, your heart gets pumping which in turn makes it stronger. If you want more information on what chores are needed in March see Garden Chores for March or call Cooperative Extension at 828-255-5522.
