Spring comes March 20 and seems impossible that it will be here that soon as I look out the window and see "inches" of snow falling again.
And with spring comes the planning for summer gardens, landscaping, projects for building and spring cleaning. Need ideas when and what to plant in your garden or do you need help deciding where and how to plant that garden? We have books that are specifically for Wisconsin gardens.
If you need to design a landscaping project that includes plants, trees, and possibly a pond, we have books to help with that. We also have books that help with the designing, materials needed for deck building, patios and summer furniture. What a great way to take your mind off winter and start thinking of warmer weather.
April 15 is fast approaching, and we still have tax forms available to help you get that job done. If we don't have the available form for you, we can print one from the federal and state websites. We also have available Internet access for you to fill out your taxes online.
