March sadness: thinking winter was over in your garden

Spring is just days away now, even though blossoms started appearing weeks ago in parts of the region. Caution to the gardeners, though: there is likely still frost ahead.

Lynn Kunstman of Jackson County Master Gardeners knows a lot of tips and tricks and just plain science in the soil.

She joins us for a gardening Q&A, now weekly as growing season approaches.

Call live at 800-838-3760 or email in advance: JX@jeffnet.org. If Lynn doesn't have the answer, she'll know someone who does.

We got a reminder this week that there are LOTS of things ready to plant now:
