Making vegetable garden plans isn’t hard, especially if you consider these 5 important things first! When the sun is shining on a cold winter day, it’s easy to close your eyes and imagine being in your garden again. Now that you’re thinking about getting back in the soil, how about making some vegetable garden plans? There’s no better winter activity if you love growing your own plants. In fact, once you have your vegetable garden plans in place, you can start your seedlings indoors – another excellent winter activity for gardeners – and move on to other things like doing an inventory of tools and supplies.
