Tuesday Tip - Starting your garden

Do you have a garden? I do! I have what is called a raised, square foot, or compact garden. I did quite well with it 2 summers ago (as in, I remembered to water it and it grew like crazy). Last year, not so much - I had an infant and forgot to water it a lot. It still produced some good stuff like lettuce and herbs, but I wasn't happy with how much I "wasted" (went to seed or went bad).

This year I'm determined to do better. I think I'm going to have a little box garden for my now 1 year old daughter so she can go out and water the garden with mommy. We'll see how that fares!

This beautiful weather in the midwest definitely has me thinking gardening! Here are some tips on when to start some indoor planting and when to transplant your seedlings! Click on the picture and it will take you to a helpful site! Happy gardening!
