Spring is here, and everyone is getting seeds and seedlings in the ground – or watching them germinate and grow, as we are here in the South. The first couple of weeks after planting are always exciting, watching the seedlings come up, anticipating the first true leaves then the first flowers and fruit.

But what else should we do? I suggest we let our plants tell us that during a weekly “wellness checkup.” A garden wellness checkup!
