Spring Gardening Tips

So its Spring. Hopfully you were a Good Gardener and put at least 6 inches of compost material onto your Vegetable Garden bed at the end of last Fall. If not thats a big Ooops! to your nearest Garden Center and purchase as much as you can! Incorporate it into your soil before planting.

In some parts of the country you've Already planted. But for those of us who live in regions that seem more like the Artic Tundra...its time to plant your cold hardy greens. Yep, thats right...SpINaCH, Kale, Lettuce, Swiss Chard, Collard Greens, Asian Greens, etc... No need to water your seeds during Spring if you planted in the ground. Mother Nature is a better gardener than you are. You can reserve your water usage for Summer.
Be sure to check out my previous Blog Post about Butterflies, "Plight of the Butterfly." It contains tips and tricks about how to invite Butterflies into your vegetable garden.
