Homemaker Volunteer opportunity
4-H Jr. Garden Club, April 26th, 3 - 5pm FCEO
The landscape is bursting with color, including many shades and tints of green. As we enjoy our
gardens, consider the following tips:
Avoid working the soil wet because this will compact the soil making it hard for the roots to grow.
Wait to prune the crepe myrtle plant until late April to early May. This plant leafs out late. When
pruning a branch, the rest of the buds below the pruning site begin grow making them less hardy.
Those buds could be damaged by a frost and shorten the height of a plant.
Tomatoes do not tolerate a frost. It is best to wait to plant them until after April 20 which is the
average frost free date in the spring. However, be prepared to cover the plants with sheets if there is
a threat of frost.

Free Yourself Through the
Practice of Presence
You know the feeling: Partway through
a conversation, you realize you have
no idea what the other person is
saying, or even what the two of you
are talking about. How can you
respond when you haven't been
paying attention? Most of us know that
being mindful and paying attention is
important; but, even so, we spend
most of our time on "automatic pilot,"
hardly appreciating the wonders
around us. Mindfulness is the key:
Tuning into the present moment
brings greater vitality to your life, and
it frees you to be more fully yourself.
Whomever you are with, give the
person your undivided attention.
Admire the individual's positive
qualities. Treat the person as if he or
she is the most important person in
the world, knowing that the
uniqueness of this precious moment
will never again present itself. When
you are fully alive to the wonder and
opportunity of each moment, anxiety
dissipates, fresh possibilities arise,
and a peaceful, fundamental
happiness emerges. Yo
