LET THE GARDEN BEGIN

With our mild sunny weather,
gardeners are planting their garden plots this weekend.

Those with 'cold boxes' have a head start, of course.
Their seedlings are plump and healthy
and ready to plant in well prepared soil.

Even with cool nights, seedlings will thrive starting now:
lettuce, spinach, broccoli, cabbage, kale, parsley, most greens.
And it's safe to sow seeds for:
carrots, onions, brussel sprouts, most herbs.
Garlic bulbs and seed potatoes are ready to plant.
(Too soon for tomatoes and peppers, of course.)

Cold boxes are a great way to get a head start
during cold winter months
(which are hopefully well behind us.)

If you don't have a garden spot,
try growing some herbs and lettuce in a large flower pot
on your porch or sunny front step.
(Your garden center will help you get started.)

Happy Spring!
