Have You Started Your 2012 Garden Yet?

peas are coming up, despite recent cold

The thermometer read 22 degrees this morning, but my garden is already off to a good start. Most of it is beginning indoors, but my peas handled the cold with no problem despite being outside where it was frosty!


As we are closing the month of April, there is still plenty of time to prepare your garden plot and to start some seeds indoors. Most seeds require a couple of weeks to sprout, and a couple more to become strong enough to transplant outdoors. If you get started this week, you’ll have your garden ready to plant by Memorial Day weekend.

If you do that, you’ll be enjoying the fruits (and vegetables!) of your labors by mid to late summer.

If you buy plants that are already started (a bit more costly, but still a good option) and get them in the ground after the threat of frost is over, you will still enjoy a good harvest of fresh food from your own backyard.

What are you waiting for? Time to get your hands dirty!
