Just when I thought that we were going to make it through the winter without a hard frost we finally got one the end of February and another the first week of March. It was so warm in January and early February my lawn stayed green instead to going dormant and turning brown. Even the azaleas were tricked into blooming by the warm weather.
March is the beginning of spring in Ocala. If you are a vegetable gardener the last frost date is considered to be March 15. The grass will be turning green again, new leaves will come out on the trees and flowers will start to bloom. Highs for March are in the high 70’s and lows at night in the 50’s. There is no humidity an very little rain this time of year. March is a great time of year.
