The weather forecast calls for warm conditions through Memorial Day weekend, so it looks like it is safe to get your gardens planted. I have a garden at my home and another one at the radio station. We put plants that we started from seed in our home garden yesterday.
If you're planning to plant vegetables or flowers or both this year, you can save a ton of money by starting your plants from seeds.
Maybe you planted seeds when you were in elementary school in a milk carton. The same principle applies here. All you need are some small containers (I like yogurt cups), some soil and some seeds.
It was just the other day that I wrote a post about getting your gardens ready. Now there's one more thing you might want to consider before deciding what to grow this year. Heirloom seeds. Remember the tomatoes your grandmother used to grow? Or the wonderful squash you got from the farmer down the road? You can now grow them yourself.
