It’s almost Here…Spring
Outdoors: Check sprinkler systems for winter damage; remove plants that failed to make it; clean and sharpen tools (wear gloves and follow safety procedures); plan your spring time seed sowing; clean and dry bird feeders and nesting boxes, look for cracked or missing caulking around windows.
Indoors: Check for mold and excessive moisture – remove and clean; get rid of overwintering household pests with approved products and insect “bombs”; clean window screens; draw up a spring cleaning plan – one room at a time. Check out Martha’s Stewart’s Cleaning Checklist (a printable version)
Safety: Remember that Daylight Savings Time means darker mornings at first. If you or your children are up and out early, take extra safety precautions.
