    Homemaker Volunteer opportunity 4-H Jr. Garden Club, April 26th, 3 - 5pm FCEO

    Enjoy Gardening! 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
