A Major Insect Emergence

Massive Cicada Emergence

Large Cicada emergences are a regular occurrence in some parts of the country every year. However, we are not talking about a small number of summer cicadas that keep us awake with their shrill nighttime song. This year is the granddaddy of all annual brood emergences. A 17-year and a 13-year brood will emerge from the ground in May in over 20 states. Trillions (That's right, Trillions) of Cicadas will wreak havoc on small trees and shrubs. The sheer number of cicadas will damage or kill many of them. Also, it will be a major nuisance in affected areas. We encourage you to identify if they will emerge in your area. Then, take steps to protect small trees and shrubs.

It's Time to Plant Tomatoes... Maybe

Tomatoes are one of the most popular vegetable garden plants. Home gardeners will tell you they look forward to that first, juicy homegrown tomato. They put store-bought, greenhouse-grown tomatoes to shame.
Tomato plants are tender annuals. Cold weather can stunt them. Frost and freeze will kill the plants. So, make sure that cold temperatures are no longer in the forecast before planting young transplants into your vegetable garden. And when in doubt, hold off for a few days.

Spice Up Your Life
