Are you ready to Garden!

It may be hard to plant when it is raining constantly, but you can find slips of time to get going. Just make sure you are not planting in soil that holds water. Now is the time of year to get a soil sample. You can easily do this through your local extension center. Your soil should be a mixture of organic matter, sand, compost, etc. A good range for your soil ph is 6.0 – 6.5.
I have already planted potatoes, onions, beets, and peas in my regular garden and lettuce and spinach in a raised bed. I had a hard time trying to harden off my plants with all the wind, rain, and cool temperatures. After two long weeks, I am now ready. This weekend, I will be planting my cool weather crop plants, which include broccoli, cabbage, brussel sprouts, and cauliflower. Find a few vegetables you love and give it a try. Having your own garden is a lot cheaper than buying produce at the store these days with soaring fuel prices. Good luck and good gardening!!
