Garden Tips for March - Foothills Sun Gazette
Your California native plants don't need fertilizer, although you could give your acid-loving manzanita a weak dose of fertilizer labeled for camelias, azaelas and magnolias.
Weed control is in high gear. Cool season grasses have seeds; warm season weeds are blooming. Whether you use mechanical or chemical or a mix, just remember weeds are trying to protect the earth's crust by reducing erosion. If you clear an area of weeds, what will replace these plants? Bare dirt is only natural in small bits. Use rock or bark or living mulch (a.k.a plants!) to keep your soil on your property.
Conserving: While purchasing your spring plants, include at least one plant that increases the diversity and usefulness for pollinators and/or other wildlife. Matching a plant with your soil and climate (including water availability) ensures fewer pests and less maintenance. Any variety of sage is a good and reliable pollinator plant, but there are lots of others. Buckwheat, for instance, or yarrow, and of course milkweed (native varieties only!) for the Monarchs. The most common milkweed in California is "narrow leaf," and it is also easy to grow. Think of it as a cottage garden plant. Milkweed is a colony plant and does best without a lot of fuss and disturbance. It's also good to note that milkweed is winter dormant and turns brown or even disappears (especially when small) every winter, only to emerge again when the soil is quite warm. Sometimes putting a garden art (gnome, perhaps?) near the milkweed allows us to remember where it is and avoid putting another plant in its spot or otherwise disturb those slumbering roots.
Take some time to consider the food chain of your garden. There is a whole world on our planet that is not human. Although we are the most important species to ourselves, are we the most important to microbes and spittle bugs? A lot of what alarms us is not really that harmful to our healthy plants. Do the least toxic first and try to live in some balance. It's a lot easier, and we should try to make our gardens a place of serenity and healing and energy and harmony. In other words, even in the modern, formal or highly-managed garden, a natural place, full of health and life. Happy springtime!
The UCCE Master Gardeners will be available to answer your gardening questions each Friday at the Visalia Senior Garden, 310 N. Locust St. from 11 a.m. to noon, and each Saturday at the Visalia Farmer's Market in the Sears parking lot from 8 to 11 a.m.

Meet The Flower Gals and Their Incredibly Instagrammable Bouquets
Favor the Kind. // Shannon Wright Photography
I grew up in Nashville, and there's a truck there right now that totally reminds me of yours: Amelia's Flower Truck. Was that an inspiration for the Flower Gals?
Taylor: Yes! Before we were doing the truck, we were doing interiors and home renovation projects, but we weren't really finding any consistency in it and we were trying to find a different route. Last October, my mom came to me with a magazine article featuring Amelia's and was like, "You're going to think I'm totally crazy, but we should do this."
Miriam: I started searching to see if the Dallas-Fort Worth area had a truck like that, and was shocked to find that it didn't. We reached out to the owner of Amelia's to let them know that we weren't competing.
T: We got the ball rolling really quick. We took a floral arranging class in Los Angeles. We found the truck during that same trip. A girlfriend of mine from high school did all our logo work, and an adorable guy in Denton put it on our truck. We've had a lot of local help, which has been great.
When did the truck make its debut?
T: We launched at an event right before Valentine's Day. The first and only store we've reached out to is Favor the Kind. Their brand and aesthetic just aligned with ours, and it ended up being perfect because they were having this major Valentine's Day sale. Since then, social media has played a huge role in our business and other businesses reaching out to us. That's where we do all our marketing. It's been this crazy humbling whirlwind - we're getting DMs pretty consistently now.
As for where the truck goes, we're in West Village quite a bit now, and we're going to Legacy West soon. It's kind of just finding that mold and where we fit best and where people will respond to the truck.
Miriam and Taylor Pierce // Shannon Wright Photography
What has the response been like?
T: It's been really positive. We've had crazy good feedback. I think the convenience is nice too. We've had several people pull over on their way to Whole Foods or Trader Joe's to pick up flowers. We do... Nov 2, 2017
Living history: Wasserman's Flowers & Gifts is a story about Muskegon's past—and future
Americanize” the name, Troy explains), who came to the United States at the age of 19 in 1872 and opened Wasserman’s Flower Shop with his wife, Amelia, in 1880. It’s a story about following dreams, about the ebb and flow of the city, about making it through the Great Depression and leaving the store to fight in World War II, about moving the shop because its home on Western Avenue, where the flower store was located for 94 years, was torn down to make way for the downtown mall in the 1970s. It’s about five generations of the Wasserman family embracing the city they’ve always known as home, about them loving, supporting, and celebrating Muskegon and its residents. “It’s amazing when I watch the History Channel or see a documentary and it shows what was happening in the country in the 1880s and 90s, and I say, ‘Oh my gosh, the flower shop was open then,’” Angie says as she sits in the store’s back room and flips through a binder teeming with the shop’s history: news clippings from decades past, black-and-white photos of relatives, obituaries of the people who once filled Wasserman’s, receipts from flowers regularly purchased by lumber barons Charles Hackley and Thomas Hume, and many more details that give a glimpse as to what 137 years means in the life of a family, a store, and a city. “It was open through the Depression, the World Wars,” Angie says. “It’s hard to wrap your head around. Our everyday livelihood goes back that long into the history of the United States and the community. And so many things have changed. There’s a wow factor for me; that’s a lot of years.”Louis Wasserman, standing at right in the back, in his greenhouse located at Irwin and Terrace around the turn of the 20th century. The beginning: Dreams of Louis Wasserman Louis Wasserman was born in 1853 in Germany and was one of three million people who, prompted by low wages and a lack of employment opportunities, left the country between 1862 and 1890 in search of a better life abroad. The great-great grandfather of Angie and Troy, Louis came to the U.S. in 1872 and first settled in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he met and married Amelia. Together, they moved in 1874 to Muskegon, where Louis worked as a tailor while cultivating his passion during off hours: his garden. Encouraged by his wife to leave tailoring and pursue his dream of working with flowers, Louis built what’s believed to be Muskegon’s first greenhouse on the corner of Irwin Avenue and Terrace Street. As Louis grew and tended to the rows of plants, Amelia would sell the flowers that were quickly embraced by the city. Wasserman’s makes one of its first media appearances in a Muskegon Chronicle section titled “Local Events” published on May 21, 1886. In the sea of text that were newspapers in the 1800s, the Chronicle gives a rundown of a variety of events in the city, including the funeral for five-year-old Elsa Kanitz, H.B. Smith opening a new grocery store on Jackson Street, and frustrations over a blustery day. (“The South Wind has been enjoying the fun of kicking up a dust today, but he’s the only chap that enjoys it. Pedestrians have found it extremely disagreeable going about the streets collecting sawdust and splinters in their optics,” the newspaper writes.) In the midst of these details, the newspaper describes a welcome scene at Wasserman’s. “A large cactus plant in full bloom at Wasserman’s... (Rapid Growth)Mar 30, 2017

Michael Shikany Funeral Services Tomorrow as the Miami Culinary World Remembers Him
I said not bad for an $80 entree and he laughed and said whatever — go paint more plates!"Nicole Amelia, brand manager for Double Cross Vodka, responded to New Times' story regarding the chef's love of tweezers by showing a screenshot of Shikany with the caption "Tweezers is back." Amelia said, "I wanted to share this with you because we had a joke about the 'tweezers' which you referenced. In times like this, a smile is everything." The most amazing story of all came from Gratzi Ela, who met the chef at an event in 2014. Her son Lucas was diagnosed with cancer when he was 8 years old, and she had trouble finding food he wanted to eat. "Michael was there for us. He gave me amazing culinary advice for Lucas," Ela said. Lucas, now 12, is a published author and runs his own foundation, the Lucas Ryan Foundation. Ela said Michael planned to write a children's cookbook, "basically, how to make very healthy food taste amazing so kids would be interested in eating healthy." The proceeds would be donated to charities that help kids fight cancer.According to an obituary shared on Legacy.com, services for Shikany will be held Saturday, March 18, at 11 a.m. at the Granada Presbyterian Church in Coral Gables. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in his name to Women of Tomorrow, the Chapman Partnership, and Miami Lighthouse for the Blind. (Miami New Times)Feb 9, 2017
