Spring Time and Gardening...

Spring time is coming to the state of Ohio. It may seem slow in coming, but with some 50-60 degree days coming our way, we really have to make sure that we are on the ball in Prepping for summer.

Have you thought about putting in a garden this year? If not a garden, how about a couple plants for some fresh fruit/veggies in your house? Do you already have fruit trees in your yard, and if you do, do you need to do any pruning?

I have started some of my seeds for the year already. I prefer to start my own seeds, but you can always buy started plants from a nursery, a grocery store, or even a big box store. But with the weather warming up, now is the time to think about it if you want to start your own plants from seeds. It takes a little more effort, but to me, it is worth it. Remember to watch the weather as I make no statements about if we will have another cold snap or anything like that, but if you start your seeds indoors, you can harden them off and always bring them back inside if we are called for frost.

Think about it, what a great feeling to grow your own food and know that you can do it....

Just In Case.

Couldn't agree more, Farmer Geek! It *is* the greatest feeling.

For anyone who is completely clueless (i.e., a novice gardener), here are two good sites that provide basic information:

Illinois Extension Office: Watch your garden grow: http://urbanext.illinois.edu/veggies/directory.html

Ohio State fruit & vegetable guide: http://ohioline.osu.edu/lines/vegie.html

P.S. All of us veggie gardeners were clueless when we started-- but you have to start somewhere!

Do you not have a contact e - address? I read an important report out today and think you might know where to post it so that many know about it. I can't speak of it here. I started to post it here but don't want to make a mistake.
