"When law can stop the
blades of grass from growin' as they grow,
An' when the leaves in summertime their
color dare not show,
Then I will change the color, too, I wear in
But till that day, plaise God, I'll stick to
the Wearin' o' the Green.

March's Full Moon, which will occur on the
6th at 11:16PM. It is often referred to as
the Worm Moon because earthworms sometimes
are able to burrow out of the softened earth
due to March's warmer temperatures. It has
also been know as the SAP Moon because tree
sap would start to rise at this time
throughout the region.
Take advantage of the high winds during
March (at the beginning, as The Almanack
predicts!) and "go fly a kite" with a child.
Nothing is as exhilarating except maybe
flying itself! Vernal Equinox occurs on
Saturday, March 20th and signals the arrival
Don't forget to honor St. Patrick on
Wednesday, March 17th by wearing something
green to school or work!
Get an early start on lawn and garden
preparation by raking up old grass and
debris (if snow is not still on the
ground!). Treat and seed bare spots in the
lawn for faster greening when the soil warms
up. As soon as your compost pile thaws,
start to turn it with a fork as best you
can. Begin pruning early-flowering shrubs,
fruit trees, and roses. Use plenty of
supplementary nitrogen in early spring, in
addition to yearly feeding. Prune trees and
vines but stay away from birch and maples as
they often bleed sap at this time of year if
