The snow is over, finally. Remember, these are spotter reports and amounts may vary from what you have in your back yard. Certainly this was an under forecast storm for snow, especially east of Route 95, and the southern part of Route 495. There are several 24 inch amounts that show up as a result of this large ocean storm. Blue Hill in Milton got nearly 30″ and that is the most reported.

Gardening this week
Depending on how aggressive you want to be in the garden, March does begin planting season. Fava beans, peas, lettuce, radish, carrots, and other cold weather crops can be planted by the end of the month. Inside, you can start many of your seedlings this month. I generally start my tomatoes in the first couple of weeks of March, which is about 8 weeks before they will go into the ground. Early this month is also the time to prune your blueberry bushes. In this week’s video I show you how to keep your blueberry bushes healthy and yielding big, juicy berries.
