Spring is just around the corner, and with a few warm days, we will all be itching to get outside and do something. We all know spring is a time of birth and rebirth, planting and sowing, as well as the flowering of trees and bulbs that have been slumbering in winter’s cold. However, we need to be cautious as spring approaches. You are probably thinking, what is there to be cautious about? Spring is for celebrating. That’s true, but what we need to do is work with nature and not against it. Now is the time when I get many calls about pasture renovation.

In baseball, it means we all can start over. Every team is 0-0. Every big league team — even the Orioles, Brewers, Royals and Pirates (yes, even the Pirates)
