fall planting http://wrvo.org en Dig, Drop and Done http://wrvo.org/post/dig-drop-and-done <p>Jim has a rule when he bites into a really hot pepper sprout in one of Megan's five-alarm hot shot panini sandwiches while lunching out on the job;&nbsp; 'stop, drop, and roll.'&nbsp; After recovery he then stumbles back to the flower bed to resume planting those spring bulbs.&nbsp; The rule there is 'dig, drop, and done.'&nbsp; It's really simple, and guaranteed to bring many springtimes of pleasure.</p> Wed, 17 Oct 2012 18:37:22 +0000 Michael S.

So get your PHD and start planting!&nbsp; Your landscape will be ready to enjoy by spring break.</p> Wed, 17 Oct 2012 18:06:52 +0000 Michael S.
