Getting Ready for Spring

It’s time to get busy planning and preparing, for spring will be upon us before we know it! If you vegetable garden, flower
garden, or just love a beautiful yard, it starts with good soil. The #1 secret to growing is PH level and proper nutrients.
• Have your soil tested to determine what’s needed, lime, fertilizer or specific nutrients, Test your soil at least once a year, ideally in the fall or at least two months before any planting.
• Observe the location conditions, morning or afternoon sun, full sun, partial shade, ease of watering, well drained but not too dry, free of rocks, and sunny. There’s nothing like the satisfaction of growing fresh vegetables in your own backyard.
• The fun part is deciding what vegetables you would like to grow and eat! Use the vegetable chart below to help decide type, when, and how to plant.
