Happy Arbor Day

"To exist as a nation, to prosper as a state, and to live as a people, we must have trees." - Theodore Roosevelt


Arbor Day is this Friday, April 24th.  Trees benefit us in all kinds of amazing ways.  According to the Arbor Day Foundation, trees can...

...Help us breathe easy,
One large tree can provide a day's supply of oxygen for up to four people.
...Keep us cool,
Trees lower surface and air temperatures by providing shade. Shaded surfaces may be 20-45°F cooler than the peak temperatures of un-shaded materials.
...Clear the air,
In one year, an acre of mature trees absorbs the amount of Carbon Dioxide produced by a car driven 26,000 miles.
...Save energy,
Trees properly placed around buildings can reduce air conditioning needs by 30% and can save 20-50% in energy used for heating.

...And they can even fight crime!
In Baltimore, a 10% increase in tree canopy corresponded to a 12% decrease in crime and in Chicago public housing residents with nearby trees and natural landscapes reported 25% fewer acts of domestic aggression and violence.

Veggie Garden Planning

Get Your Garden Growing!

 April is a great time to look ahead and start planning your veggie garden.   Check out our 2015 Vegetable Planting calendar to help you plan your planting.  The calendar isn't set in stone, it's just a  guideline that shows about when to plant certain veggies relative to the last average frost date.  

Last Average Frost Date

The last average frost date is the date after which you wouldn't expect any more freezing weather. As Mother Nature is not exactly known for her punctuality, the last frost date is more of an estimation, rather than a specific day.  A good rule of thumb is that the last average frost date occurs on or around Mother's Day.  But that can certainly vary.  The CSU Extension Office offers these guidelines based on 47 years of observation: 

After May 2nd - 50% Chance of Frost
After May 12th - 20% Chance of Frost
After May 18th - 10% Chance of Frost
