Spring has sprung and the gardens are just beginning to show off their colors. I’ve seen lilac buds about to bloom and the daffodils have been flowering for a few weeks. If you planned ahead you might have created some starters for vegetables and more indoors and if you didn’t you could take advantage of the upcoming sale from Yakima’s Master Gardeners.
