Q.With the rain and our dogs, we have a muddy mess in our back yard. Will it work if I plant rye grass now?

A. Probably not. It is relatively late in the winter to plant rye grass and it is not sturdy or thick enough to resist the traffic of large dogs. You did not say if the yard is in sun or shade, or how large it is. Consider laying some zoysia sod. It is very traffic-tolerant and has some shade-tolerance. You could lay a whole lawn or just use pieces as an emergency ground cover on the worst sites.

Q.We are going to start our own tomatoes this year. When do we need to plant them?

A. You need six weeks to grow transplants for the garden. Start them now for mid-March planting.
