Don’t Jump the gun

I know that it is only mid- February, but the weather was really nice for a few days and I was ready to get started on a new project. Got the tractor out and started  leveling the area and planned on hooking up the backhoe and digging today. Boy, I was surprised to wake up to unexpected snow.

Now, I know that you aren’t about to start putting pond plants in just yet. But remember when spring arrives that you might want to wait a bit before starting up bio filters and spending a lot on seasonal plants. A quick drop below freezing and your plants and good bacteria will be dead. So be a little more patient than I am when it comes to getting started this spring.
