Springtime is here and it's time to head outside and get your garden ready. But not everybody has a green thumb. That's why Washtenaw County has teamed up with the Michigan State University Extension to offer the DIAL-A-GARDEN service. Helpful gardening tips are just a call away. The public can call in and listen to a Garden Message by Bob Bricault, Extension Educator for Horticultural and Natural Resources. Everything from crab grass control to soil testing is covered. The topics vary from month to month. To contact DIAL-A-GARDEN call 734-971-1129 and select a topic. www.ewashtenaw.org
