The Beginner Gardener: Plant Your Vegetable Garden Earlier with an Eco Garden
In the Garden with Jessica
Planting the vegetable garden is right around the corner. I’m ready to replenish my less-than-stellar soil from last year, but snow has impeded my plans. A big lesson I’m learning so far: planning the garden is a good idea, but Mother Nature will not actually let you set it in stone. If you’re like me you want to plant your vegetable garden earlier this year too.
Hopefully I can get to the soil next weekend and then I’ll get my cooler crops into the garden by the end of April. Here’s what’s going in first, all straight from seed:
In early May, I will plant broccoli and lettuce, which I started from seed indoors, and carrots, which I will direct seed. The rest of my seeds will go in after Mother’s Day, just to be safe—we had snow here in the Twin Cities in early May last year.
