Getting Your Garden Ready

It’s that time of the year again when you get the itch to work in vegetable garden digging around in the cool and pliable dirt. There are bargains on heirloom tomato plans at farmers markets too. Plant low maintenance squash and cucumbers and do it with children if you can. They will learn the power of patients, hard work, and how to cultivate and accomplish goals. Children enjoy picking veggies and herbs and when they do so it will increase their desire to eat them. A must in a garden are peppers, garlic, bay leaf, sage,  scallions, thyme and rosemary as seasoning. You will also reduce your grocery bill.
