Greenhouses a Woe? Direct Sow!

When most think of starting vegetable gardens from seed, they immediately picture greenhouses, growing lights, and months of preparation. Although this is one way (and for some varieties, the only way) to grow vegetables from seed, there are many varieties that will thrive and produce delicious crops simply by being directly planted in the ground or in containers.

Think Spring: Preparing Your Soil

Like children, plants need a healthy environment to thrive and mature to their fullest potential. As spring is just around the corner, or already here for many, it is time to prepare your soil for planting. This is a simple and fulfilling process and your plants will thank you (with their beautiful blooms or delicious crops) when they have just the right environment to grow.
