Spring in Colorado has arrived –
Beautiful days to get in some vitamin D sun exposure as we are lured outdoors, to plan, plant and weed, followed by storm fronts that bring great moisture… um… via blizzards (is winter done yet?)
Thankfully, the CSU Small Acreage Newsletter for Spring 2016 has arrived!
In this issue, you’ll find tips and information as we move from one season to the next, (and sometimes back again) here in Colorado – the blooming of noxious weeds, the challenges concealed by winter’s blanket, but now apparent, irrigation tips to prepare for the the hot, dry, summer days soon to arrive – and much, much more.
The Spring 2016 issue includes:
- Making Beeswax Candles
- Backyard Chicken Harvesting
- Is This the Year of the Voles?
- Irrigation Options: Gated Pipe
- The Facts About Compost Tea
- Understanding and Using ‘cides’
- Reading Pesticide Labels
As we wrap up our Annual Tree Programs, we are getting geared up to bring you more information, learning opportunities to aide you in your goals for this year.
