Tips from The Garden
I like gardening -- it's a place where I find myself when I need to lose myself.
It’s that time of year again, relaxing in the garden in the early mornings and evenings, and -- preparing the yard and gardens for the heat of summer in South Central Texas! For the next three to four months, keep all of your plants, inside and outside, well hydrated.
Time spent outdoors in the fresh air and sunshine can be highly therapeutic. Fresh scents in the early morning could be just the thing to get us through another day of sequestering. Go ahead, give it a try.
For All: There are excellent gardening videos/webinars at the link below
For CMGs: Texas A&M has removed the 3-hour limit for online CE hours. Work toward those 12 CEs online.

Perhaps North America’s most colorful bird is arriving in our area now. Each year this beautiful bird arrives in Texas between March 5 and May 22 from its winter vacation on the Mexican shores and Central America. If you've seen one let us know.
The painted buntings arrived!

from Trainee Tracy D.
I am absolutely delighted by the breadth and depth of the information we are receiving from our training. Even from lockdown in a pandemic! Thank you for making these excellent webinars and online resources available to us. Thank you, Sydna and the 2020 Class Committee and our expert speakers for keeping the learning on track. And thank you classmates for bringing a cheerful camaraderie to our online adventure. Your garden pictures have been a joyous celebration of the natural world that we all love so much. And your stories, jokes, and comments build connection in this time of separation. It will be a sweet day when we all can meet again.
