A Spring Planting List

You may be wondering where to begin with your spring garden. You probably need a spring planting list! I have found a spring planting list to be helpful. Rather than plant as you go, it’s important to have a plan for your garden.  In my opinion the hardest part of gardening is soil preparation. However, it’s very worth the time, effort, and investment if done properly. Once you have your soil ready, it’s time to begin planting. And be sure to look into getting heirloom seeds, you can read why here.

    • Thank you! I love container gardening too! I do all of my herbs in containers, and I usually end up with plenty to use all summer plus plenty to dry and use over the winter. 🙂 This year I’m also growing garlic for the first time. Hope you have a great summer container garden!
