Getting Ready for Spring.

Save This

Well it's been another cold winter, here for just a little bit longer they say, but spring is really coming. So let's get our yard and garden ready now that spring is on it's way!


Whether you prefer vegetable gardening, flower gardening, or just love having a beautiful yard, it starts with good soil.
The #1 secret to successful growing is knowing if the PH level is correct and you are providing the 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 to dry, free of rocks, and sunny. There is 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!
