With March already here, many gardeners are beginning to plan for their crops; it also being St. Patrick Day week, many will be thinking of “tater” planting. But with the past winter there’s doubt if land will be ready; still we need to plan and also buy seeds early, as for the last several years, many places have sold out.

For now, Clarke Hardware in Culpeper has plenty of potatoes, onion sets and snow peas, with other seeds arriving soon. So plan now, and then what could be better than fresh garden vegetables?

March also brings times of celebrations, that is for birthdays: We extend wishes to Edna Denin; Shelvy Frazier; Nick Norman; Jackie Cubbage; Jennifer Peregory; Gwen Parker; Larry Cubbage; David Baker; Linda Hitt; Matthew Bragg; Velvet Mason; and Sadie Norman. May the good Lord grant each of you many more. (Lastly, this writer is also a “March chick.”)

Mrs. Geneva Burke has returned to her home following ankle surgery and several weeks’ stay in Culpeper Rehab Center.
Mr. and Mrs. Shelvy Frazier and Mr. and Mrs. Chris Frazier and Vinessa-Lynn were Thursday evening guests of Mrs. Marie Atkins on Acornbrook Lane.
