Gardening: The Beer Slug Board Game
Preparing Your Garden for Winter
Each month, we share a reader's weather question--and answer it! This month, the question is: Why is snow sometimes called “poor man’s fertilizer?”
Is it true when they say; If March comes in like a lamb, it will go out like a lion, or the other way around?
Hello, reader, the old weather saying goes:
If March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb.
If March comes in like a lamb, it will go out like a lion.
The weather in March is certainly temperamental! Some sky watchers believe that there’s a heavenly connection. The constellation Leo, the lion, is rising in the east at the beginning of March and thus “comes in like a lion,” while Aries, the ram, sets in the west at the end of March and “will go out like a lamb.” --Your OFA editors
