Now's the Time for Garden Planning

Sure, there's still snow on the ground at many of our homes. And more possibly in the forecast! But, believe it or not, now's the time to start your garden planning:

  • Seed starting: Some seeds can be/ need to be started in pots indoors. Then they'll be primed and ready to go when outdoor planting season comes.
  • Put it on paper: Try laying out your garden's "floorplan" or making appropriate lists you'll need as soon as the ground thaws.

Prepping and planning for gardening is a great way to get your head into a sunnier disposition. Spring really is coming, and planning now will give you a head start. Do you plan your garden or other plantings this far in advance? Let us know below what you do this time of year to prep for springtime.
