“David Says”

  • Irish potato tubers can be planted.
  • Coreopsis and nasturtium seed should be sown.
  • Plant up spring tomatoes in 6″/1 gallon nursery pots. Protect them if it gets too cold.
  • Look for the new rodeo tomato “Solar Fire” – It’s good!!!
  • Plan to attend the San Antonio Rodeo and Livestock Exposition, and visit the Texas Cooperative Extension and Bexar County Master Gardener exhibits in the “Texas Experience” pavilion. It will be lots of fun.
  • Learn and have fun.
