I hope every one enjoyed the 2014 Western Wrap Up Newsletter. Thanks to everyone who contributed. I had about 15 yc's participating. We got lots of positive feedback from the board and alumni.

Right now my farm is getting ready to start planting and fertilizing. How is everyone's garden going? Have you started propagating seeds? It is about that time of year again.

I know Mississippi is turning GREEN. I went to Nebraska and Mississippi this past weekend to visit colleges and the buds coming out were beautiful. The roadsides of Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee are blooming with REDBUD.

I drove through Lexington, Kentucky on my trip and I am getting excited for convention. The city is beautiful and there are many horticultural sights around to visit. I hope everyone is enjoying spring as much as I am!!!
